Public Hearing for Revisions to the Spokane County Land Capacity Analysis

The Spokane County Steering Committee of Elected Officials will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed revisions to the Spokane County Land Capacity Analysis (formerly named Land Quantity Analysis).

Public Hearing for Spokane County Comprehensive Plan Amendment File No. CPA-17-23

Spokane County proposes to correct the urban growth area boundary to include the vested plats of Woodridge View 4th Addition and Falcon Ridge North Plats. The proposal would bring the boundary of the vested plats into the urban growth area and assign the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning designation of Low Density Residential (LDR). Spokane County has identified parcels included in the 2017 Land Quantity analysis that were assigned population capacity, that have either been developed with a non-residential use, or have been sold to a non-development agency. Additionally, the county will be removing the Greenwood Memorial Cemetery as well as the Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery property from the Indian Canyon UGA-JPA to account for the direct exchange of UGA acreage. The Falcon Ridge and Woodridge View Plats are located at the northeast portions of the 5-mile prairie neighborhood, in Section 14, Township 26 North, Range 43 East, Willamette Meridian, Spokane County, Washington. Copies of project application materials, reports, agency comments, public comments, as well as SEPA documentation and determinations can be found on the 2023 Comprehensive Plan Amendment webpage.

Questions or assistance with remote connection or telephone conference prior to the hearing should be forwarded to Elya Miroshin, Planning Commission Clerk (509) 477-7139.  Individuals planning to attend the meeting in person who require special assistance to accommodate physical, hearing, or other impairments, please contact the Planning Commission Clerk as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made. 

To ensure everyone attending has an opportunity to speak, testimony may be limited to three (3) minutes per speaker. Virtual Chat is not supported. The Steering Committee reserves the right to adjust the time frame allotted to speakers during the public hearing.
