In 2022, Washington enacted new legislation (ESSB 5593) adds a provision allowing counties to consider changes to existing UGA boundaries through means of a “swap.” No UGA swap can result in an increase in the total surface area of a UGA boundary. 

This applicant-initiated project requests to use this UGA swap legislation to bring their parcels into the Tumwater UGA boundary by removing other parcels from within the Tumwater UGA.
