Since 2017, LDC has been providing ongoing legislative assistance to our clients by drafting and supporting bills through the legislative process. LDC work focuses on housing, land use, and other Growth Management Act (GMA) changes that will positively impact our communities as we grow and urbanize.

We have successfully worked on legislation that has resulted in:

• Allowance of administrative approval of final plats
• Updated Buildable Lands requirements
• Grants to local governments so they can focus on housing issues
• Support for providing a variety of housing options (ADU’s, missing middle housing)
• Increasing residential building capacity within our urban areas

Going Above the Standard

Our success is driven by our understanding of the GMA and stakeholders who may be impacted by changes that are proposed. We prepare legislation that proactively addresses issues upfront in order to make the legislative process easier.
