Comprehensive Plan and CAMA Land Use Plan Update

The City of Washington is updating its existing Comprehensive Plan and CAMA Land Use Plan through community engagement. This combined Comprehensive Plan and CAMA Land Use Plan will be forward-thinking and will align with the City’s vision and goals. It will serve as a guide for elected and appointed officials making significant land use decisions, decisions which will impact the entire community. The development of this Plan will be driven by the community and will included the required elements of a CAMA Land Use Plan and include local elements that preserve community character.

The combined Comprehensive Plan and CAMA Land Use Plan will also include a Future Land Use Map depicting the intended development pattern for the City’s future. The map will be developed to help achieve the community’s vision for the City of Washington.
