County sets open houses to expand scope of growth plan study
Vancouver, WA – The Board of County Councilors has added a fourth alternative for consideration in the environmental review needed to update the local Comprehensive Growth Management Plan.
Three alternatives were approved for environmental review in the fall of 2014:
• No change.
• Changes to long-range planning for some rural and urban areas.
• Urban growth boundary changes for smaller cities.
The new alternative, approved for study on March 11, considers changes to land use plans in rural areas. Information about all the alternatives will be presented at two open houses, both 5:30-7 p.m.:
• March 25: Ridgefield High School, 2724 South Hillhurst Road
• April 1: Hockinson High School, 16819 NE 159th St.
The Board will hold a public hearing at 10 a.m. April 14 at the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St.
