of County Commissioners to Hold Public Hearing to Establish 2008 Docket
of Comprehensive Plan Amendments
The Skagit County Comprehensive Plan is fully reviewed every 7 years, but interim changes may be considered annually. One of the first steps in that process is for the Board of County Commissioners (Board) to establish the annual docket (or list) of amendments that will receive further consideration through public, agency and environmental review, Planning Commission hearings, and possible adoption by the Board. The Board has scheduled a public hearing for applicants and members of the general public to comment on which amendment proposals submitted in 2008 should be placed on the 2008 docket for further review and consideration.
The Board of Skagit County Commissioners has taken final action on the 2007 docket of proposed amendments to the Skagit County Comprehensive Plan and Land Use and Zoning Map. The proposal consisted of two citizen-initiated map amendment proposals; nine county-initiated map amendment proposals; the Alger Community Plan; and several county-initiated Comprehensive Plan text amendments. On Tuesday, December 23, 2008, the Skagit County Board of Commissioners adopted Ordinance No.O20080015 approving certain proposed amendments.
