Public hearing to examine revised rural zoning map for growth plan
Vancouver, WA -- Clark County will hold a public hearing to consider a revised rural zoning map before completing a final environmental impact statement to assess the county’s “preferred alternative” for the next growth plan.
On Nov. 24, the Board of County Councilors adopted a “preferred alternative,” which incorporated components of Alternatives 1, 2, 3 and 4.
County planners are recommending that the Nov. 24 zoning map be revised to correct errors and omissions and more accurately reflect the intent of the “preferred alternative” in rural areas.
The board will consider the recommendations at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19, at the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St.
If approved, the proposed map could affect about 320 parcels in rural areas. Proposed corrections focus on parcels that currently have “split zoning.” Those parcels have some agricultural or forestry (resource) zoning and some (non-resource) rural zoning.
The Community Planning department has notified property owners who may be affected if the recommendations are approved.
