Board to discuss scope of rural options in growth plan study
Vancouver, WA – The Board of County Councilors will hold a work session at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 11 to discuss rural options in the ongoing effort to update the Comprehensive Growth Management Plan. The work session will be open to the public on the sixth floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. Three alternatives are included in an environmental analysis nearing completion. The councilors are considering whether to expand the environmental study to cover a fourth alternative introduced during a work session last week. The fourth alternative has not been finalized. However, the preliminary focus is on parcels smaller than 9.5 acres in forestry and agricultural zoning districts. When the alternatives are completed, the county will hold open houses to provide information on those scheduled for a revised environmental study.
