Plan Review

Last Updated: 
Mar 15, 2017

Through our plan review program, PSRC ensures local plans are in sync with the region’s VISION 2050 growth strategy. 

Every city and county within the central Puget Sound region develops a long-term (comprehensive) plan to shape the future of their community.  PSRC works with local governments and agencies to ensure that planning is coordinated and meets regional and state requirements. View PSRC's adopted Policy and Plan Review Process.

Plan Review Manual

A set of materials, compiled in a Plan Review Manual, provides details on the policy and plan review and certification process, background, and framework. The manual also provides guidance and checklists for aligning plans and policies with VISION 2050 and Growth Management Act requirements.


Certification is a requirement for jurisdictions and agencies that intend to apply for PSRC funding or proceed with projects submitted into the Regional Transportation Improvement Program. PSRC maintains a report of the certification status of each jurisdiction along with each jurisdiction’s most recent certification report.
