The Whatcom County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding:
Proposed amendments to the Whatcom County Code Title 20 Zoning that would amend the Resort Commercial District, amend the Planned Unit Development Chapter, and create a new Density Credits Chapter. The proposal includes allowing increased single family residential density in the Resort Commercial zone in the Birch Bay Urban Growth Area if the developer purchases density credits. Funds taken in through the density credit program would be used in the County’s Agricultural Purchase of Development Rights Program. File #PLN2017-00010. The draft findings and proposed zoning text amendments are attached.
The hearing will be held Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the Planning & Development Services Northwest Annex, 5280 Northwest Drive, Bellingham.
