City of Federal Way Comprehensive Plan Periodic Update 2024


The City is beginning a project to update its Comprehensive Plan, pushing the planning horizon to the year 2044.  The Comprehensive Plan is the city’s map for the future and provides the goals, objectives, policies, actions, and standards that are intended to guide the day-to-day decisions of elected officials and staff for the next two decades.

The updated plan will include a shared vision for topics such as land use, natural environment, transportation, economic development, utilities, and housing. New topics include Climate & Resiliency, Human Services, Arts, Culture & Diversity; and a chapter dedicated to subarea plans such as areas around the future south Sound Transit station, at roughly Enchanted Parkway & S 352nd.

Check out the Council approved Public Participation Plan here. Join the interested parties list by signing up for an E-Newsletter. City staff will maintain a list of interested parties who will receive electronic notification of public meetings, project milestones, and participation opportunities.
