RCW 36.70A.210 requires that each county mandated to plan under the GMA develop and adopt CPPs in cooperation with the cities in the county. These policies establish a framework for the preparation of local comprehensive plans and development regulations. These policies are not the equivalent of a regional comprehensive plan. The legislative direction is to develop policy statements to be used solely for attaining consistency among plans of the county and the cities/towns.
These CPPs have no direct fiscal impact. They are an agreed upon method of guiding the planning activities required by the GMA. Actions requiring further analysis could include (but are not limited) those listed in Appendix F.
