Puyallup Tribe Wins VISION 2050 Award

PUYALLUP TRIBAL LANDS-- The Puyallup Tribe of Indians has won a VISION 2050 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) for its Comprehensive Land Use Plan. 

The VISION 2050 Awards celebrate progress ­to enhance the region’s communities and natural environment while advancing equity and opportunity for all.  The awards recognize innovative work. 

The Puyallup Tribe Comprehensive Land Use Plan provides a valuable resource for understanding the Tribe’s history, existing conditions, and vision for the future. It will help to make that vision a reality and will further overall coordination with the surrounding communities.

“The Tribe’s priorities and strategies for conservation of open space and natural habitats will be an important resource for coordination,” says Josh Brown, PSRC Executive Director. “Strategies in the plan to address climate change will have an important regional role. The Tribe’s plan will also be an important consideration in the development of the regional and county safety plans.” 

The award will be presented at the Puyallup Tribal Council meeting on June 18.

VISION 2050 is the region’s plan for growth. By 2050, the region's population will reach 5.8 million people. The region’s cities, counties, Tribes, ports, agencies, businesses, and communities have worked together to develop VISION 2050 to prepare for this growth and serve as a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities and a strong economy.
