County public hearing on fish and wildlife continued to July 28

A public hearing on the county’s fish and wildlife habitat conservation plan has been continued to 6:15 p.m. Monday, July 28.

Those who did not already have the opportunity to offer public input at the Monday, July 21 public hearing will have a second chance to do so.

It will be held in the Commissioners Hearing Room in Coupeville.

Island County is in the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan and the development regulations that protect fish and wildlife habitat conservation areas.

Proposed changes include adopting new Department of Natural Resources criteria for stream typing, clarifying requirements for riparian buffers, updating criteria designating habitats and species of local importance, and defining the maintenance of agricultural watercourses.
