Subarea Plan Public Meeting

For the past year, the City of University Place has been in the process of developing plans for three Districts within its Regional Growth Center Subarea. An ad hoc committee appointed by the City Council has been meeting regularly with our consulting firm, Otak, and City staff to identify creative and innovative ways the City can plan to accommodate the increase in residents and jobs forecast by the State and allocated to it by the Puget Sound Regional Council. 

Public input is an important part of this process. Last December, two days of planning and public meetings were held to seek comments from various stakeholders, including public agency partners, utility service providers, local businesses, and property owners in the Regional Growth Center Subarea. The public meetings were held in the evenings on both days for community members and others interested in learning more and participating in the process, to express their concerns and ideas.

On May 31, the City is offering a third opportunity for public input as the subarea plan evolves. During this public meeting you will have a chance to see some draft concepts that are the result of these efforts. Your input is essential as we move to refine these ideas into a plan that will move the City forward equipped to address the challenges of increased population and employment. Be sure to hold the date open and plan to attend! Provide your input into the future of these areas, be a part of the process and the City’s future!

The public meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 31 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Town Hall Meeting Room, 3715 Bridgeport Way West, University Place.
