NOTICE OF DETERMINATION OF NONSIGNIFICANCE (DNS) AND A PLANNING COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING

Whitman County Planning issued a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act Rules (Chapter 197-11 WAC) for the following project:

Whitman County proposes amendments to zoning ordinance Chapter 19.05 – Administration and Enforcement, allowing a designee to issue Rural Housing Certificates, clarifying how a Rural Housing Certificate can be issued and making a few scrivener’s corrections.

After review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with us, the Planning Office has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.

A public hearing will be held by the Whitman County Planning Commission on November 7, 2018, in the Auditorium, first floor of the Whitman County Public Service Building, at 7:00 PM.

Copies of the DNS are available at no charge from the Planning Office, Whitman County Public Service Building (2nd Floor), N. 310 Main St., Colfax, WA 99111. Interested persons may submit environmentally-focused written comments on the SEPA decision by 5 p.m. on Thursday, November 1, 2018, and before 5:00 PM on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, regarding the proposed zoning amendments to the County Planning Office, P.O.
