The Forks City Council will hold a public hearing as part of its regular meeting to gather public comment on the proposed revised 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.  It is possible that the Council will consider the adoption of the proposed Comp Plan at its meeting on 23 Sep 2019 or at one of its October meetings.

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 rodf @forkswashington.org.  To be included in the materials at the public meeting, comments need to be received by no later than 4 p.m. on 9 Sep 2019.
