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 - Upcoming Virtual Outreach Meetings on Clinton Gateway - September 15th and 22nd 

The Clinton Community Council will be hosting virtual community meetings to discuss the Draft Clinton Gateway Plan. The Community Council has provided several priorities to the Island County Planning & Community Development Department for consideration. The Community Council and the County are now seeking community input on those priorities.  Please note, the priorities are in draft form at this time and will need to be vetted by other agencies, the Planning Commission, and the Board of County Commissioners. The final Clinton Gateway Plan will be a subsection of the Economic Development Element of Island County's Comprehensive Plan in 2020. The Comprehensive Plan is the official vision document for the future of our County, guiding many aspects of environmental protections, housing development, and economic activity and infrastructure investments.

The draft plan can be found here:

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.
