The Mid-County Community Plan and implementing regulations were adopted by Pierce County on December 6, 2005. Mid-County is centrally located in Pierce County and is unique in having both urban and rural areas. The plan area is approximately 23 square miles in size and encompasses almost 14,652 acres. Several small communities are included in the plan area, including Summit-Waller, North Clover Creek Collins, and Summit View.
The majority of the Mid-County plan area is rural, so growth has not been as rapid as in neighboring urban areas, however being surrounded by growing urban communities has led to impacts from growth, such as traffic. The community plan provides residents, property owners, business people, and Pierce County government with a detailed sense of how the community wants Mid-County to develop in the future.
This Community Plan Update is a chance to review and identify issues within the Plan that may or may not reflect the Community’s goals and vision for future development. The Plan update will include updates to policies, land use designations, infrastructure and more.
The Mid-County Land Use Advisory Commission will draft updates to the Community Plan and hold public meetings in 2018. Community members are encouraged to participate in this process. When the Land Use Advisory Commission has completed their draft, it will be considered at Public Hearings by the Planning Commission, and then considered for adoption by the County Council. The update is expected to be heard at the Council in late 2018 or 2019.
