VISION 2050 recommendation ahead

Growth board to meet on Dec 5

The Growth Management Policy Board is expected to complete its review of VISION 2050 on December 5 and make a formal recommendation of the draft plan to the Executive Board.

The draft VISION 2050 plan recommendation will be the culmination of two years of work by the growth board to help the region prepare for nearly 6 million people expected to be living here by 2050.

The plan extends the regional growth strategy another decade  and updates policies covering many important regional issues, including climate change.

At the meeting, the board will consider a handful of remaining proposed amendments covering specific aspects of the Regional Growth Strategy, military installations and compatibility, Puget Sound recovery, school siting, and climate change.
