The Washington State Boundary Review Board for Skagit County was established
in accordance with state statutes to provide local independent review
of certain actions proposed by cities, towns and special purpose
districts. The actions that most commonly come before the Board
are annexations. The Washington State Legislature has specifically
defined the purpose, authority, makeup, terms, fees and procedures
of Boundary Review Boards. This legislation and amendments that
have occurred over the years are contained in Chapter 36.93, Revised
Code of Washington (RCW).
The Board consists of five members, all from Skagit County, appointed
by elected officials of the cities, special purpose districts, the
county (one member each) and the Governor (two members). Terms are
four years. Although the county is mandated by state statute to
fund the Board, the Board and its staff function independently,
and do not represent county interests to the exclusion of the interests
of other parties involved in the process.
The Boundary Review Board offers affected jurisdictions and citizens
the only independent review of proposed boundary changes. Its
jurisdiction is invoked only when there is a dispute regarding a
proposed action. Its decisions are based on specific statutory
objectives and consistency with the Growth Management Act, and its
written hearing decisions reflect those statutory requirements.
