Frequently anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: Comprehensive Plan Land Use
Abstract:
A comprehensive plan is a generalized; coordinated land use policy statement of the governing body of a county or city that is adopted pursuant to the Washington State Growth Management Act. The CPLU designations are defined in the King County Comprehensive Plan and so designated in order to implement the plan's land use policies. All incorporated areas are purged from the published layer as King County does not have planning jurisdiction in those areas. CPLU designation boundaries are tied to cadastral features. When cadastral features are adjusted to improve positional accuracy the CPLU boundaries must also be adjusted.

Why was the data set created?

The Comprehensive Plan Land Use Codes in this layer reflect the goals of the King County Comprehensive Plan. These codes may be revised annually by Comprehensive Plan map amendments and occasionally other planning ordinances. The Comprehensive Plan Land Use categories are officially designated by the King County Comprehensive Plan and required by King County ordinance to be mapped.
