2020 Work Plan

The annual work plan for the Planning & Community Development Department includes amendments proposed to the Island County Comprehensive Plan (the annual docket items), work related to potential future amendments, development regulation updates, and process/procedural updates.

Notice - Updated 2020 Work Plan
Planning & Community Development has had to recently reprioritize the 2020 work plan. This is due to the staffing and resource needs posed by the public health and economic recovery response to Covid-19. The table of work plan items below reflects this new prioritization. Those projects which were originally placed on the 2020 work plan and which are no longer reflected in the table of work plan items below, are proposed to still move forward in 2021. This includes the following items:
  • Code updates to Ebey's Landing Historical Reserve Design Guidelines
  • Rural Lands Regulatory Revisions - Phase III
  • Housing Element Implementation - Work Force Housing
  • JPA and UGA process revisions and associated Countywide Planning Policy Updates
  • Update of GIS layers to reflect updated APZ zones; and
    • An associated Study of Land Use around OLF Coupeville in Response to Navy AICUZ study
Also Note that the Economic Development Element for the Island County Comprehensive Plan has now been refocused in scope towards the development of a Community Economic Recovery Plan.
