Description:
Abstract:
Combined incorporated City boundaries and unincorporated Urban Growth Areas (UGA) as defined by the Growth Management Act.
Purpose:
This data set is a municipal information layer for the Washington State Department of Ecology, Geographic Information System, and is designed to be used in conjunction with the Washington State County Parcels layer to enable Ecology staff to locate and identify ownership data for the purpose of fulfilling Washington Administrative Code (WAC) protections, regulations and services.
Supplemental_Information:

1. The Washington State Dept. of Ecology, with contributions from WA Dept of Commerce and WA Dept of Transportation, maintains City/Urban Growth Area boundaries to service its own geographic information business needs.

2. Most boundaries follow current county/city maps and GIS layers provided or displayed by each County and are matched to the Washington State County Parcel layer boundaries defined by each County where possible.

3. This dataset is not meant to represent a legal survey boundary description but rather, follow and include, all ownership parcels within the visual boundaries of a City or UGA. 4. Ecology does not in any way guarantee the accuracy of this information.

5. City and Urban Growth Area boundaries can be changed at any time.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Geometry edits made by Ecology GIS staff are based on visual inspection of city/uga boundaries, county parcel boundaries where available and NAIP digital 18" color othrophotos. Where possible boundaries are matched to a county parcel boundary layer using a 10-20 foot snap tolerance in ArcInfo/ArcEdit. Attribute item 'ORIGIN' contains specific boundry line edit information.
