Comprehensive Plan Amendments


Sumner’s Comprehensive Plan lays out the community’s vision for how we will live, work, get around, and grow over the next 20 years. The Plan contains goals, policies and maps that identify environmental, social, and economic priorities for the future. The various chapters address land use, housing, transportation, and capital facilities. State law only allows the comprehensive plan to be amended once a year with major updates coming every 10 years. This year the City is opening the Plan for community discussion and potential revisions. These revisions may also include changes to the the city's zoning. Zoning within the City controls where commercial, housing, and industry can be located. A major aspect of this year’s amendments is to update the East Sumner Neighborhood Plan, generally the area within a few blocks of the YMCA.

The City wants to hear from the community and this page on Sumner Connects will contain all the important dates for meetings, public comment opportunities and relevant documents.

We will also be keeping the community informed and engaged through:

  • The City’s weekly e-news and quarterly newsletter
  • The City’s social media pages
  • Formal public hearing notices on the City website

Remember that comment periods will have opening and closing dates, so you’ll want to check for updates right here on Sumner Connects.
