Project Purpose

The Collaborative Framework Phase III project builds upon the findings, concepts and recommendations in recent state-funded reports to make recommendations to the Legislature on reforms to the state’s growth policy framework.

During this phase of work, the project Task Force will make recommendations the Legislature prior to the 2022 and 2023 legislative sessions. Task Force participants represent a broad range of perspectives. Project engagement will also include a special focus on Federally recognized Indian tribes and the lived experiences and perspectives of people and communities who have too often been excluded from public policy decision-making and who are unevenly impacted by those decisions.

2021 report to the Washington Legislature

To build a strong foundation for this phase, the project team has developed the Project Framework and Path to Success. This includes a project framework and engagement plan that will provide a set of guideposts to ensure project deliverables and expectations are met and that the project is a success.

Excerpt from Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (ESSB) 5092:

[Commerce is] to convene a task force to make recommendations regarding needed reforms to the state’s growth policy framework […]. The process will build upon the findings, concepts and recommendations in recent state funded report […]. The task force must involve diverse perspectives including but not limited to representatives of counties, cities, special districts, the real estate, building, and agricultural industries, planning and environmental organizations, tribal governments, and state agencies. Special effort must be made to include in these discussions the lived experiences and perspectives of people who have too often been excluded from public policy decision-making and unevenly impacted by those decisions.
