Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive plans are the centerpiece of local planning efforts. The Federal Way Comprehensive Plan articulates a series of goals, objectives, policies, actions, and standards that are intended to guide the day-to-day decisions of elect4ed officials and local government staff. It is a document designed to guide future actions that impact the community. It presents a 20-year vision for the future, with long-range goals and object5ives for activities that help ensure the city grows in a planned way. This includes guidance on land use, transportation, housing, and other critical topics.
