The mixed-use town center (M-U-TC) zone district was created in 1994 to promote reinvestment and development in the county’s older, more established mixed-use areas. This document updates the July 1994 Mount Rainier Town Center Development Plan and revises the development policies and design standards and guidelines that will support a pedestrian-friendly, vibrant mixed-use town center for the City of Mount Rainier.

This plan was developed by M-NCPPC during an extensive 18-month public participation process that involved the input of many residents and public officials. The plan, which takes into account current market and economic conditions, consists of five sections: the Introduction, which defines the project area and outlines the public participation process; the Existing Conditions Analysis, which includes a historical overview and current economic and marketing considerations; the Plan Vision, which describes the envisioned future for the M-U-TC area; the Design Standards and Guidelines, which promote high-quality urban and architectural design; and the Implementation, which provides information on funding resources to encourage, promote, and facilitate near, medium, and long-term project goals.
