Planning Partners

Intergovernmental coordination is an important part of growth management. The Growth Management Act (GMA) requires the development of countywide and multi-county planning policies to provide a framework from which county and city comprehensive plans are developed and adopted. Snohomish County’s policies are coordinated through Snohomish County Tomorrow (SCT).

Snohomish County Tomorrow

Snohomish County Tomorrow is the designated, countywide planning organization composed of Snohomish County, its 20 cities and towns, and the Tulalip Tribes. SCT provides a forum to discuss all aspects of land use planning, transportation, and other issues facing the County and its cities and towns.

SCT also works with the counties of Pierce, King, and Kitsap to provide input to the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) regarding land use and transportation planning.

Puget Sound Regional Council
