OKANOGAN COUNTY
NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF A SEPA CHECKLIST
AND PUBLIC HEARING

 Notice is hereby given under WAC 197-11-455 and WAC 197-11-510 that the Okanogan County Office of Planning and Community Development has issued a Threshold Determination of Non-Significance for the proposed Okanogan County zone map error correction. 

Proponent & Lead Agency: Okanogan County Planning Department

Proposal: The Okanogan County Office of Planning and Development has discovered a mapping error that occurred during the zone code update done in 2019.  The error affected 11 properties along Highway 20.   We are proposing to correct the mapping error.

The original zone designation for the affected properties, prior to 2019 was Rural Residential.  In 2016, an interim zoning map was adopted which kept the afore-mentioned parcels in the Rural Residential designation.  When the final zone map was adopted in 2019, the parcels were erroneously changed to Low Density Residential when the new zone map was created.  The mapping error correction being proposed will return those parcels back to the original designation zone of Rural Residential.

Location: The properties affected are just north of Winthrop and include the following parcels:
3521290017, 3521190030, 3521320070, 8844700101, 3521300049, 3521300046, 3521320071, 3521330030, 3521330029, 3421030113, 3421030087

Agencies, affected tribes, and members of the public are invited to comment on the non-project SEPA Checklist, Threshold Determination of Non-Significance and the zone map correction project documentation. The deadline for submitting comments is October 20, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. You may submit your comments in writing or electronically to: spalmer@co.okanogan.wa.us or comments can be mailed or delivered to 123 5th Ave N. Suite 130, Okanogan WA 98840.

Public hearing:  A public hearing has been scheduled with the Okanogan County Planning Commission to give interested parties the opportunity to provide verbal testimony on the Okanogan County zone map error correction. The public hearing will be conducted on October 24, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in the Commissioners Auditorium in the Virginia Grainger Building in Okanogan Washington.  Verbal testimony will be limited to 3 minutes per speaker.
