Project: 2024 Comprehensive Plan UComp Planpdate and Municipal Code Update


The City of Stanwood is seeking community input on changes to the Comprehensive Plan and Municipal Code.  What is your vision of Stanwood’s future?  We want to hear your suggestions and ideas so that these documents reflect the values and aspirations of the entire community. The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range (20-year) planning document that establishes city policy direction guiding growth, development, community character, and quality of life. The Comprehensive Plan addresses the required population and employment targets.  It consists of 13 goals and five required “elements”, or chapters: land use, transportation, housing, capital facilities, and utilities. It also includes several optional elements including economic development, parks and recreation, conservation, solar energy, and climate change.  Stanwood’s Comprehensive Plan also includes the policy element for the Shoreline Master Program mandated by the State. The Municipal Code contains the local laws that implement the goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan.  


The Comprehensive Plan and Municipal Code Update projects are expected to take approximately two years to complete; this is the beginning of the process and there will be many opportunities to participate in the update. Please follow our progress at
