The state's Growth management Program is organizing some of the discussion through a series of roundtables and other forums.
An action plan, Smart Growth Strategy for the 21st Century, will be developed to build on Washington's growth management efforts, and find solutions for emerging needs. It will include benchmarks or indicators to measure Smart Growth progress.
Other actions - including legislation, task forces, public and private choices, regional coordination efforts, incentives, and education - are expected to follow up on the strategy.
Citizens, elected officials, and others can read and comment on issue papers prepared for the strategy discussions.
