2025 Comprehensive Plan Update

The State of Washington requires cities, who plan under the Growth Management Act (GMA), to regularly update their comprehensive plans and development regulations. This process is called a “periodic update” process and each jurisdiction is required to complete these updates every ten (10) years. This process ensures that the City’s comprehensive plan is coordinated with state laws and that we are implementing the Growth Management Act consistent with other cities in the state. The City of Ferndale is currently within a periodic update process and is expected to adopt revisions to the comprehensive plan and development code by June of 2025.
