What will Bonney Lake look like in 2049?

The City is updating the Comprehensive Plan to reflect how the residents of the community want the City to grow in 25 years, which will coincide with the City’s centennial in 2049. As the City updates the Comprehensive Plan, the City wants to know and understand what the community identifies as shared values and goals and create policies that benefit the entire community of Bonney Lake. The City expects to complete the Comprehensive Plan update in October 2024.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

The Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) enacted in 1990, provides a framework for state, regional, county, and local planning coordination, requiring cities and counties to develop a plan to help manage growth over a 20-year planning period. This plan is referred to commonly as a Comprehensive Plan.

The Comprehensive Plan guides citywide policies on topics that affect our daily lives including housing, transportation, economic development, the natural environment, land use, and parks.
