The Whatcom County Planning Commission will hold public hearings regarding:

A proposal to insert the concept of a density credit program into the Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan. A density credit program would allow development incentives, such as increased land use intensity, in exchange for a voluntary contribution towards preserving agricultural lands and open space. The proposal would also delete many of the references to transfer of development rights (TDRs) in the Comprehensive Plan (File #PLN2018-00002).

A proposal to repeal the Cherry Point Ferndale Subarea Plan, which was adopted in 1981. The proposal would also amend related provisions in the Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan and the Whatcom County Zoning Code (File #PLN2018-00003).

The hearings will be held Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Planning & Development Services Northwest Annex, 5280 Northwest Drive, Bellingham.

More information will be posted on the County website at:
