The Des Moines Comprehensive Plan serves as a roadmap that expresses our community's goals and aspirations for how we want to grow and prosper into the future. The City of Des Moines updates its Comprehensive Plan in accordance with the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) governed by RCW 36.70A. The next periodic review and update of the Comprehensive Plan needs to be complete by December 31, 2024. A necessary periodic update of the Comprehensive Plan is a thorough process in which we review each element of our plan and evaluate new laws and requirements. While the updates take years to undertake and are often expensive, the City of Des Moines has been awarded $125,000 by the Department of Commerce specifically to help fund the 2024 update.
