Participate in SWUGA Boundary Planning Study Community Survey

Snohomish County is currently conducting a community survey for the Southwest Urban Growth Area Boundary Planning Study (SWUGA BPS). The results will be used in the study to help identify what currently works well in and near the Study Area and to identify topics that the County should consider if future planning initiatives were to consider land use changes within the SWUGA BPS area.


Please see the map below for the SWUGA BPS area and have your voice heard by participating in the community survey. The survey is open through April 26, 2019.


There are two ways to take the survey:

   * Online Survey via Survey Monkey

   * PDF Survey (Instructions for returning survey on bottom of survey form)

Overview

Snohomish County Planning and Development Services (PDS) is midway through a project to study part of the County adjacent to the fast-growing south-easterly edge of the Southwest Urban Growth Area (SWUGA) – see map below.


The project is not proposing changes to land use, polices, or UGA boundaries. It is a high-level study to provide background about existing conditions in the SWUGA and the study area, and opportunities and constraints to consider if adjustments to the boundary are under review in the future.
