Land Capacity Analysis


Planners for the county and the cities worked together to estimate the capacity of the urban growth areas (UGAs) to accommodate the projected population and employment growth in the planning period for the 2016 Comprehensive Plan.

The planners developed a methodology to ensure that the estimate is done consistently across all UGAs. The County Council Planning and Development Committee discussed the draft methodology on November 25, 2014. 
PDS published a report summarizing the results of the Land Capacity Analysis. The report included the final methodology as an appendix.
