School siting outside UGAs

HB 2499 from Rep. Wilcox (R-Yelm) has been scheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 8am. It appears that the bill would only apply to Pierce County and requires counties to permit schools outside UGAs in certain specific circumstances. These include when the school is needed to meet capacity, a land availability survey that documents the land within the UGA is not available, transit-oriented design is implemented and environmental protections are addressed. Please provide any comments to Carl Schroeder.
