Regulatory Reasons for the work
The work is mandated by the Washington State Legislature through its Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A.020) which requires county Comprehensive Plans, to plan for specific facilities and financing methods, and to make regular plan adjustments based on current budgets and community needs.
Background/History/General Program Information
The planning document includes estimated proposed dates, costs, and methods of financing roads, bridges, sewers, parks, drinking water facilities, stormwater, garbage disposal, recycling, government and public services buildings. This plan is long-range in scope, because implementing capital improvements typically requires multi-year commitments of financial resources. The planning is also complex, requiring each department of the County to focus on projects under their jurisdiction, while coordinating with the BoCC and other County departments.
