Franklin County Comprehensive Plan Update Project

Summary of the project


Franklin County is conducting a periodic update of its Comprehensive Plan in accordance with the state's Growth Management Act (GMA).

The County's Comprehensive Plan is an expression of the County's values and priorities.  The Comprehensive Plan provides a 20-year vision for how the citizens of the community want their County to look and to function.  The County first adopted a Comprehensive Plan in the 1970s.  After the passage of the Growth Management Act (GMA), the County adopted a Comprehensive Plan to address the elements required by the GMA in 1995.  The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) adopted the current version of the Comprehensive Plan in 2008, and has amended that document a few times since. 

In fall 2017, the County is beginning the periodic Comprehensive Plan update process and expects to complete the update by the summer of 2018.

Notice is hereby given that Franklin County is accepting applications for map and text amendments to the Franklin County Growth Management Comprehensive Plan for the 2018 annual Comprehensive Plan amendment cycle. Requests for annual amendments can propose changes to land use designations, policies, or any other component of the Plan.

The Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) allows Comprehensive Plan amendments only one (1) time per year. Any interested person, organization, agency, or business may submit a complete application to the County for changes to the Comprehensive Plan, including maps and text.

An application for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment (map and text) may be obtained at the Planning and Building Department at 502 W. Boeing Street, Pasco, WA 99301, by calling the department at 509-545-3521 or by visiting the department’s website at: http://www.co.franklin.wa.us/planning/planning_forms.html 

Please note, a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist is a required submittal with this type of land use application. Complete applications are due by Friday, March 23, 2018 at 4:30pm. If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Stickney at 509-545-3521.

Notice is further given that a periodic update to the Comprehensive Plan is underway and requests related to map and text amendments under that process will be combined with requests and applications received as a part of the 2018 docketing process, pursuant to WAC 365-196-610(3)(a). The periodic update is due by June 30, 2018 and therefore requests related to the periodic update are also needed by March 23, 2018 to ensure consideration. Otherwise, requests may be deferred until the 2019 amendment docket.
