On March 25, 2010 the Governor signed SSB 6214 which consolidated the three boards into one. The bill left intact the regional structure to hear cases in the three regions from which they arose. For details click here: Board Consolidation Information.

In 1990, the Washington State Legislature passed the Growth Management Act (GMA) and subsequently created three independent Growth Management Hearings Boards to resolve land use disputes and to reflect regional diversity. The jurisdictional regions for the three boards are as follows:

Eastern Washington: includes all counties and cities east of the crest of the Cascade Mountains which are required to plan or choose to plan under the Act.

Western Washington: includes all counties and cities west of the crest of the Cascade Mountains which are required to plan or choose to plan under the Act, but are not within the Central Puget Sound Board's jurisdictional boundaries.

Central Puget Sound: includes King, Snohomish, Pierce and Kitsap Counties and the cities within those counties.
