The members of Snohomish County Tomorrow – 19 cities, Snohomish County and the Tulalip Tribes – recently received a Governor’s Smart Communities Award for their collaboration on the Countywide Planning Policies.
This award gives Snohomish County Tomorrow members well-deserved recognition for their cooperation during a 26-month period to draft policies consistent with the state’s Growth Management Act.
“I commend the work of those local governments and their partners recognized with this award,” Gov. Chris Gregoire said. “Their efforts are vital to our continued economic recovery and help make Washington a great state in which to live and do business.”
“The work is a shining example of how communities, often with different interests and perspectives, can come together for the betterment of the whole county,” said Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon. “Through this work, we have developed a blueprint for current and future development of high-quality communities and protection of resources.”
“Snohomish County Tomorrow is a model for cooperation between counties and cities,” said County Council Chairman Brian Sullivan. “It is unique because we all meet as partners around a single table.”
