Draft comprehensive plan documents will be discussed by the Board of Island County Commissioners at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 17 during the board’s regular Wednesday work session in the Commissioners’ Hearing Room in Coupeville.

The board will chew over the submittal of the draft comprehensive plan documents to the State Department of Commerce for 60-day review and community review and input. According to a timeline set by county long range planning staff, the next month of the process will involve analysis of public comments received this summer in comprehensive plan open houses held across the county. County planners expect a final revised draft comprehensive plan by October, so it can be presented for review in November and December. The timeline expects adoption by the board in January.

County planning staff is asking the board to place approval of the drafts for submittal on the Tuesday, Aug. 23 regular meeting at 10 a.m.
