Please join the Puget Sound Regional Council for a work session in your area on the update to the regional centers framework.

They want to hear your thoughts on key central places in Pierce, King, Snohomish, and Kitsap County and what defines them.  Of interest and part of the centers update is the discussion about how military installations should be recognized and incorporated into land use and transportation planning by the Puget Sound Regional Council and local governments.

Attend to discuss how the region supports these important central places and the objectives of the centers framework update.    

Pierce County | FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16th, 10:00-Noon | PUYALLUP CITY HALL, 333 S Meridian, Puyallup, WA 98371

Please RSVP! Email Sara Maxana to hold your spot!

These sessions are open to the public. They will be of particular interest to public officials and local planning and transportation staff that work on issues related to planning in centers and neighborhoods.

The Puget Sound Regional Council is working with its members and other partners to evaluate the regional centers framework and recommend structural changes to recognize both regional and subregional centers using consistent designation criteria and procedures. If adopted, the new centers framework would inform future regional and local planning and investments.

The project includes five phases. They are currently in the Research Phase that will produce a Background Paper that evaluates existing designated and undesignated centers and how they are supported through regional investments, and a Centers Market Study that identifies market indicators and estimates growth demand for centers.

The work sessions will help inform the Research Phase of the project by providing stakeholder input to shape additional research questions and allow PSRC staff to ground-truth preliminary findings of the research phase.  Please attend and lend your perspective and expertise to this process!

RSVP:  Hold your spot by sending an email to Sara Maxana at
