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

Agrow Solutions, LLC, proposes to change the zone of an approximately 8-acre area from the Agricultural District to a Limited Heavy Commercial District for a storage warehouse for the purpose of selling agricultural chemicals to farmers. The parcel is located on the north east side of the intersection of SR 195 and Old Wawawai Road, approximately 0.4 miles west of Pullman, in Section 1, Township 14 N., Range 44 E., W.M., Whitman County, Washington.

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.

The public is also notified of the intent to hold a public hearing during a Whitman County Planning Commission meeting on February 6, 2019, at 7:00 PM in the Public Service Building, 1st floor auditorium, N. 310 Main St., Colfax, WA 99111.

Copies of the M-DNS are available at no charge from the County 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 5:00 PM on Thursday, January 31, 2019, and before 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, regarding the proposed zone change to the County Planning Office, P.O. Box 430, Colfax, WA 99111-0430, fax: (509) 397-6210, or attend the hearing.
