October 9th at 4pm at the Planning Department office conference room, the Wasco County Citizen Advisory Group will convene to begin review and work on proposed amendments to Chapters 2, 3, 6 and 9 of Wasco County 2040, the Comprehensive Plan.  These updates are in conjunction with Periodic Review Work Tasks 5-8.

Work Tasks 5-8 were discussed with the public and stakeholders in the Spring of this year, including at May and June road show events.  The topics included:

  • water conservation
  • land use planning incentives
  • agri-tourism
  • economic development

The feedback from public meetings, online comments, surveys and stakeholder interviews have been compiled and resulted in proposed amendments which can be viewed on the Wasco County Planning Department website as part of the Citizen Advisory Group packets.  The packets include staff reports, explaining changes, and reviewing relevant criteria to legislative updates.

The public is invited to attend and submit testimony and comments relevant to these proposed amendments.

The first evidentiary hearing for Work Tasks 5-8 will be held on Tuesday, November 6 at 3pm at the Discovery Center lower level classroom.
