2021 Annual Amendments

The City of Puyallup considers amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Future Land Use Map once each year. Applications were due by April 1, and the City received one privately initiated application for consideration in the 2021 amendment cycle. The typical process for review includes holding work sessions with the Planning Commission over the summer months, a Planning Commission public hearing and recommendation in late Summer or early Fall, and consideration of that recommendation by City Council in the fall, with City Council action by the end of the year. There may be some adjustments to the process or structure of the meetings this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. 

The Planning Commission held work sessions on May 12 and July 14, 2021. The Planning Commission agenda packets, which include additional information on the application, are posted on the Agendas webpage. Please see the next section for information on upcoming meetings and public hearings. 

Public Meetings
