The Forks Planning Commission is giving notice that it will hold a public hearing/public workshop as part of a special meeting of the Commission on 29 Jun 2016 to gather public comment on a proposed preliminary revision to the Forks Urban Growth Area (FUGA) Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan). The City of Forks is required to update the FUGA Comp Plan in such a manner as to be compliant with the Growth Management Act. The purpose of this meeting is to obtain from the public their input, reaction, and suggestions to a completely redrafted Comp Plan that includes the goals and policies for the required chapters: Affordable Housing, Capital Facilities, Economic Development, Land Use, Transportation, and Utilities. The Comp Plan also guides the City’s revisions of its Zoning Code, Critical Areas Ordinances, and other development regulations. The format of the meeting may change in response to the number of participants in order to ensure that the audience can provide information and comments in a manner that works best for them.
A copy of the draft may be found at the City’s website: www.forkswashington.org Individuals may submit written comments on the preliminary revision of the Comp Plan by sending those to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be included in the materials at the public meeting, comments need to be received by no later than 4 p.m. on 29 Jun 2016.
