The Parkland-Spanaway-Midland (PSM) Communities Plan and implementing regulations were adopted by Pierce County on June 11, 2002. PSM is centrally located in central Pierce County, making up the western edge of the unincorporated area. The plan area borders Joint Base Lewis-McChord, City of Lakewood, and City of Tacoma. The plan area is approximately 20 square miles in size. The plan area includes three separate but interconnected communities, tied by history, environmental features, transportation issues, and growth pressures: Parkland, Spanaway, and Midland.

The communities are characterized by a mix of historic urban communities, new suburban residential neighborhoods, and large lot residential areas. The plan area is also home to Pacific Lutheran University, Sprinker Recreation Center, Spanaway Park, the Clover Creek watershed, Spanaway Lake, and major commercial and transportation corridors.

The community plan provides residents, property owners, business people, and Pierce County government with a detailed sense of how the communities want to develop in the future.
