The updates to the County’s natural resource maps and changes to the code are part of the Significant Natural Resources (SNR): A Focused Look at Fish and Wildlife project. The forums will include staff presentations and opportunities for you to ask questions and provide comment on the possible changes to the natural resource regulations. Land Use & Transportation planners will give a presentation and be on hand to discuss the how the rules would work and how they may apply to properties with natural resources.

The project will update the policies and regulations for significant fish and wildlife habitat in the urban unincorporated area.

The project will result in updates to Washington County’s Goal 5 program and rules for the County’s significant natural resource areas through our Community Development Plan policies and code standards.
