800 (2015-259 May 20) Notice of Public Hearing AMENDMENT TO OCC 14.08 OPEN SPACE OPEN SPACE

(2015-259 May 20) Notice of Public Hearing AMENDMENT TO OCC 14.08 OPEN SPACE OPEN SPACE

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Okanogan Board of County Commissioners has continued the public hearing held on May 12, 2015 to take additional public testimony regarding an ordinance amending Okanogan County Code 14.08 Open Space Open Space program.

This notice corrects an error in the notice published April 29, 2015 which identified OCC 18.08 as the code under consideration for amendment. OCC 14.08 Open Space Open Space is the correct code section.

After considering public input received in the first hearing the Commissioners have directed the ordinance be revised to repeal rather than amend OCC 14.08.080 Ineligible Lands and that notice be published inviting further public review and comment.

The SEPA Responsible Official has determined this proposal is categorically exempt from environmental review in accordance with WAC 197-11-800 (19).

The continued public hearing will be conducted on June 8, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. in the Commissioners Auditorium in the Virginia Grainger Building in Okanogan, WA. Verbal testimony will be taken with a time limit of 3 minutes per speaker. Written comments may be submitted at the hearing. Written comments will be accepted prior to the hearing and may be submitted in writing or electronically to Lalena Johns, Clerk of the Board, at 123 5th Ave N Ste 150, Okanogan, WA 98840 or at ljohns@co.okanogan.wa.us.

Date of publishing is May 20th, 2015.

Copy of the proposed amendment may be viewed on the Okanogan County Planning Department website at www.okanogancounty.org/planning.

Information regarding this proposal can be obtained from: Okanogan County Office of Planning and Development, Perry Huston, Director of Planning, 123 5th Avenue North, Suite 130 Okanogan, WA 98840 (509)422-7218 or phuston@co.okanogan.wa.us .
