A proposed plan for guiding growth and development in the Graham area is ready for public review. Next week, the proposed Graham Community Plan will be unveiled by the Graham Land Use Advisory Commission, and the Pierce County Planning Commission will begin its review.

Pierce County Planning and Land Services has worked with the advisory commission for the past four years to develop the plan, which includes policies, action steps, land use designations and zoning, development regulations and design standards. The public is invited to attend and provide public testimony on the proposed plan at the following meetings:

Graham Land Use Advisory Commission; 7 p.m. Feb. 6 and Feb. 14; Graham Library, 9202 224th St. E.

Pierce County Planning Commission; 7 p.m. Feb. 8, Feb. 15, Feb. 22, March 1; Graham-Kapowsin High School, 22100 108th Ave. E.

At the Feb. 8 meeting, the planning commission will consider the Land Use Element; Feb. 15, Community Character Element; Feb. 22, Economic Development and Natural Environment Elements; and March 1, Facilities and Services Element. Final planning commission consideration and action is scheduled for March 8, and no public testimony will be received at that time.
