Pierce County Council OK’s pursuing Vision 2050 agreements

In a 6-1 vote, the Pierce County Council passed an ordinance authorizing the county executive to enter into interlocal agreements with cities and towns within the community as part of Vision 2050 plan adopted last year by the Puget Sound Regional Council.

Vision 2050 charts the course for the region’s growth over the next 30 years and includes the region’s multi-county planning policies and a regional strategy for accommodating growth through 2050.     

Councilmember Amy Cruver was the lone no vote, noting a major project like Vision 2050 should have more public input.

“This is a transformational document, and it’s more than just making sure roads are right and putting houses in places and some infrastructure,” she said. “It is creating designer cities, designer citizens, designer stores, designer streets, and I don’t think it’s a sustainable situation, and although I understand we have to vote on this, this is something that the public should get to vote on.”

The council passed a resolution recognizing Toby Rickman, deputy director of Pierce County Planning and Public Works, for 17 years of exemplary service to the county.

The council passed a resolution recognizing May 15-21, 2022, as “Peace Officers Week” in Pierce County.

The council passed a resolution proclaiming May 2022 as “Juror Appreciation Month” in Pierce County.

The council passed a resolution declaring May 15-21, 2022, as “National Public Works Week” in Pierce County.
