City of Shelton Comprehensive Plan Update
The Washington State Growth Management Act (or “GMA”) is a state law that requires county and local governments to manage growth. All Cities and Counties must be in compliance with the requirements of the GMA to be eligible for grants and loans from certain state infrastructure programs. While the City of Shelton already has a Comprehensive Plan to manage its growth, the GMA requires that plans be reviewed periodically to better reflect current conditions.
Questions regarding this information should be directed to Jason Dose, Senior Planner, at 360-432-5102 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Comments are due by 5:00 p.m. on Monday March 6, 2017.

WHAT IS THE CITY’S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT IT?
In its most simple terms, a Comprehensive Plan is a “roadmap”, of sorts, that helps guide the City’s future growth, while protecting our natural resources and refining our community character. The City has many choices regarding the specific content of the Comprehensive Plan and the Development Regulations (primarily zoning) that implement the plan. That is why we are reaching out to YOU to provide input and assistance in the plan update so you can help us shape the future of Shelton!

CONCEPT FOR FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS AT FOURTH/RAILROAD
The first phase of proposed enhancements on Railroad Avenue will occur this summer as a part of a demonstration project. This will include a “road diet” which reduces portions of Railroad Avenue from four to two lanes, introduces angled parking, and progressive tests of differing intersection controls and treatments at Fourth/Railroad, and other street enhancements. There will be opportunities for citizen feedback on the proposed treatments and progressive tests.
