Clark County has scheduled two public meetings to introduce the proposed rural growth plan alternative.
The public meetings are scheduled to provide information and request citizen feedback on a newly revised proposal for the rural component of the next growth management plan. The meetings are to be held in an open-house format, and are scheduled for the following dates and times:
Monday, November 16 at Hockinson High School, 16819 NE 159th Street, from 5:30 to 7:00PM, and Tuesday, November 17 at Ridgefield High School, 2630 S. Hillhurst Road, again from 5:30 to 7:00PM.
In addition, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at 6:30 PM Thursday, November 19 to receive comments and develop a recommendation to the Board of County Councilors regarding the latest proposal for updating the growth plan. The hearing will be on the sixth floor of the Public Service Center, downtown at 1300 Franklin Street.
Four alternatives are now under consideration as the Board prepares to select a “preferred alternative” as the basis for an environmental impact statement (EIS).
Alternative 4 was revised by the Board during a work session on November 9. It is posted online at www.clark.wa.gov/thegrid/. Additional materials are also available online at www.clark.wa.gov/Planning/2016update/index.html.
