On October 2, 2018, the County adopted an updated Housing Element of the Island County Comprehensive Plan. As part of the work for that project, an Implementation Plan was created that provides discrete tasks that Island County will pursue to implement the policies adopted in the Housing Element and address issues identified by the Housing Needs Analysis. This Implementation Plan contains 7 actions that the County can take over the next 5 years.
County staff has worked with an advisory group to brainstorm a list of potential code changes for further research and consideration. This list is a brainstorming exercise only, and does not constitute a final list of code updates; some ideas may be dropped, changed, or added after further research.
Staff is currently conducting research on the ideas contained in the brainstorming list of potential changes.
