A Focus on Central Unincorporated Urban Pierce County
Central Pierce County provides both opportunities and challenges for accommodating future targeted growth. As a means to provide stakeholders with a focused look at these, a map has been created that identifies:
Residential vacant and underutilized properties accessible by public road;
Sewer lines; and,
Water service areas.
You can access any of the 6 township maps that focuses on the central Pierce County Urban Growth Area (UGA) by clicking on a township on the map to the right.
The 2010 baseline parcel data from the 2014 Buildable Lands Report has been updated to 2015 to identify vacant parcels. Please refer to the 2014 Buildable Lands Report, Section II: Data Collection for a description of vacant and underutilized land (pages 18-20).
