Zoning Code Amendments
On October 22, 2013, the Whatcom County Council adopted Title 20 Zoning Code Amendments that had been recommended by the Title 20 Review Advisory Committee and the Planning Commission. The purpose of this review of Whatcom County Code Title 20 (Zoning) is to correct errors, inconsistencies, and ambiguities that have arisen in the code over the years, and make the document easier for the county and the public to use.

County Executive Louws has appointed an ad-hoc committee to work with Planning and Development Services staff in making these updates. This committee consists of representatives of a variety of interests in the community, as well as members of the Planning Commission and County Council. Using the committee’s input, staff has prepared a draft of the amendments for review by the Planning Commission and consideration by the County Council.
