Project Overview

  • Staff Memo 
  • Scope
  • The Board is scheduled to adopt the ordinance as recommended by the Planning Commission, with one minor edit, on their June 11th Regular Agenda.  View the revised draft here.

The process to review application inside Ebey's is found under Chapter 17.04A ICC and in the Town of Coupeville Code section 16.13.060.  There has been confusion over time from new staff and we have received comments from the public and Historic Preservation Commission that recommend changes. Town and County staff have drafted the following goals and objectives for this update:

  1. Evaluate the decision types for projects within Ebey’s Reserve to improve efficiency in the permitting process
  2. Codify existing practices/code interpretations
  3. Reevaluate the number of commissioners on the HPC and the definition of a quorum
  4. Amend the process for Special Evaluation.
  5. Reformat the Design Guidelines with updated section numbering and cross-references to improve internal consistency and ease of use
  6. Remove, modify, and augment guidelines to improve clarity, reduce redundancies, and address gaps in accordance with comments from the Historic Preservation Commission, Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve Trust Board, stakeholders, staff, and the public.
  7. Provide guidelines for alternative energy structures
  8. Improve consistency with Secretary of Interior Guidelines

 

Next Steps

The Planning Commission held a public hearing the proposed revisions to the Historic Preservation Commission membership on May 20th. 

 The Board is scheduled to adopt the ordinance as recommended by the Planning Commission, with one minor edit, on their June 11th Regular Agenda.  View the revised draft here.

 The remaining code revisions will be presented and discussed at future meetings.
