Skagit County to Host Series of Comprehensive Plan Update Open Houses

Skagit County Planning and Development Services will be hosting a series of open houses over the next three weeks as an opportunity for the community to learn about and contribute to Skagit County’s 2025 Comprehensive Plan Update. The Comprehensive Plan serves as a vital roadmap for the future growth and development of Skagit County over the next twenty years and acts as a framework to guide the day-to-day land use decisions by elected officials and local government staff. During the open houses, community members can expect to hear more about the following topics:

  • Revising development regulations relating to land use, natural resources lands, rural character, and environment, to ensure they are compliant with new state laws and reflect our community’s priorities.
  • Developing goals and policies to encourage housing affordable to all income levels.
  • Updating transportation plans to support future road improvements and additional modes of transportation.
  • Creating a community more resilient to climate exacerbated hazards and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Each open house is a walk-in style with engagement activities and educational posters. Skagit County staff and other experts will be available to answer questions on the Comprehensive Plan update process and how the community can be involved throughout the next year. The open houses will be taking place on the following dates and locations:

  • Anacortes Depot and Community Arts Center, 611 R Avenue, Anacortes, WA on Thursday, June 20th from 5:30-7:00 PM
  • Sedro-Woolley Community Center, 703 Pacific Street, Sedro-Woolley, WA on Wednesday, June 26th from 5:30-7:00 PM
  • Concrete High School, 7830 S Superior Ave, Concrete, WA on Thursday, June 27th at 5:30-7:00 PM

Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to stay informed and participate actively in the 2025 Comprehensive Plan Periodic Update by visiting www.skagitcounty.net/2025CPA or emailing pdscomments@co.skagit.wa.us.

Please note, there will be a second series of open houses focused on climate change this upcoming fall.
