Comprehensive Plan Update


BHC worked with the City of Morton to bring its Comprehensive Plan into compliance with the Washington Growth Management Act. We provided updated population and growth projections, along with housing supply data and projected demand. An overarching goal of the update was to incorporate climate resiliency throughout the plan. To achieve this, BHC conducted a climate change vulnerability assessment and determined appropriate resiliency measures specific to the City’s needs.


  • Periodic update included changes to all elements
  • Climate change resiliency measures added throughout the plan
  • Prepared new GIS maps for zoning, land use, environmentally sensitive areas, and public facilities
