The purpose of a mandatory periodic update under the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) is to review and, if needed, revise the plan and regulations to ensure they comply with the GMA; this differs from the annual amendment process. The updated plan would retain the existing population projections and allocations (for the cities of College Place, Prescott, Waitsburg and Walla Walla) for 2038, the next 20-year planning period. The existing population targets were adopted in 2005 and retained in 2013 for 2033; the countywide target is 71,724 which falls within the medium and high population projections from the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for 2038.

•Added a policy allowing for temporary placement of manufactured homes for medical hardships, as currently allowed under development regulations.

Chapter 5, Land Use

•Updated existing conditions to reflect recent information, including population projections and distribution.

•Removed or refined goals and policies to improve consistency with County code and implementation practices, and to increase conciseness and clarity.

•Added goals and policies for the protection of quality and quantity of ground water used for public water supplies, promotion of physical activity, citizen participation, and amendments to include the most recent Countywide Planning Policies.

Chapter 6, Rural and Resource Lands

•Updated existing conditions to reflect recent information.

•Revised goals and policies to reflect current information, to improve consistency with County code and implementation practices, and to increase conciseness and clarity.

Chapter 7, Parks and Recreation

•Added information on the Blue Mountain Regional Trails Plan.

•Removed outdated discussion of level of service.

Chapter 8, Transportation

•Updated to include changes to the transportation network and within the planning bodies that guide transportation policies and improvements.

•Revised goals and policies to be organized around the Washington Transportation Plan policy goals for clarity and consistency with other local and state-level plans.

•Added information about non-motorized transportation facilities, traffic forecast data, funding of the county road system, concurrency, and the County’s system for prioritizing transportation projects.

Chapter 9, Utilities

In the updated plan all the maps will be included in Appendix A. All maps were updated to include current and improved base map data. Minor improvements to formatting were also made.

Appendix B: Growth Management Act Legislative Summary and Appendix C: Public Involvement Process were updated to include new information and background.

Appendix D: 1998 Agricultural Lands Survey and Appendix H: Projects Eligible to Receive Economic Development Sales Tax Funds were not amended.

Appendices E, F and G include new transportation information including the County’s 6-Year Transportation Improvement Program and Priority Array, replacing appendices D, E, and F in the 2007 plan.

Development Regulations Amendments

Title 8 – Health and Safety

•Minor revisions to reflect current zoning districts.
