2016 Comprehensive Growth Management Plan update

About the 2016 update project
Clark County is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The current plan, adopted in 2007, covers 2007 to 2024. The update will extend the current plan's growth outlook from 2015 to 2035. We expect to complete the update project in June 2016.

Updates will refresh policies and elements of the plan with an eye toward population and employment growth over the next 20 years. With this growth comes potential for increased demand for residential, commercial and industrial land, parks, schools, services, utility facilities and roads. The 2016 update focuses on future land use needs in unincorporated urban areas, but has links to planning in cities, rural areas and the Town of Yacolt.


An FTP site has been established to view documents received from the public relating to the 2016 Comprehensive Plan update. Before accessing the documents, please refer to the Brava Reader instructions on the FTP site. To access the FTP site type in or copy and past the following link in your browser.
