The strategies are recommendations only and will require County Council direction to move forward with implementation
VANCOUVER – Clark County is responding to the need for a greater variety of housing options. The proposed Housing Options Study and Action Plan identifies housing challenges within the unincorporated Vancouver Urban Growth Area and includes recommended strategies as solutions to support a wider range of housing options affordable to a variety of household incomes.
The strategies are recommendations only and will require County Council direction to move forward with implementation. Many of the strategies require a separate legislative approval process to be implemented. Other strategies are administrative and could be implemented immediately upon County Council direction.
The Planning Commission will hold a work session then a public hearing on the action plan. Both meetings will be held via video conference.
The work session will be Thu., April 7 at 5:30 p.m. The work session is an informational session for the commission members to be briefed by staff in preparation for the hearing. The public is welcome to attend, however there is no opportunity for public comment. That is reserved for the hearing
The public hearing will be Thu., April 21 at 6:30 p.m. The hearing will also be carried live on CVTV Channel 23 and online at www.cvtv.org.
For information on how to join and participate in the meetings, please visit www.clark.wa.gov/pc.
The Housing Options Study and Action Plan is a culmination of two years’ work including the participation of a volunteer Project Advisory Group that studied the issues and developed the recommended strategies in the plan.
The Planning Commission will provide a recommendation to the Clark County Council on the plan and potential recommendations on specific strategies they are interested in pursuing for implementation.
