[ARCHIVED] Critical Areas Community Open House April 23, 2018

Critical areas include wetlands and streams, aquifers, fish and wildlife habitat, frequently flooded and geologically hazardous areas. Regulation of critical areas is important to protect people and property, and to preserve and protect anadromous fisheries, such as salmon.

The city’s critical areas regulations, Chapter 16.15 MTMC, have not been updated since adoption in 2004. The city is past due for a review and update of its critical area development regulations as required by the Growth Management Act (GMA). The amendments will assure consistency with changes in state law since 2004, the city’s current Comprehensive Plan, and GMA requirements.

The community open house will provide information on the proposed updates to the critical areas regulations. It will also be an opportunity for the public to ask questions, and provide input.

The open house will be followed by a Planning Commission work session meeting at 7:00 p.m. Staff will make a short presentation. A schedule of upcoming public meetings and hearings, together with more information about the critical area amendments is available at www.cityofmlt/1860.
