PUBLIC HEARING SET TO AMEND SPOKANE COUNTY ZONING CODE

A public hearing has been scheduled for amendments to Spokane County Zoning Code that would allow governmental agency training facilities to be permitted in urban and rural zoning categories.  A public virtual hearing via Microsoft Teams and/or telephone conference will be held on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.  

Spokane County is considering development of a training facility for law enforcement that could include classrooms, an indoor firing range, storage facilities and other associated uses.  The proposed amendment will allow this type of facility in both rural and urban zoning categories.  The proposal will amend the Spokane County Zoning Code to allow governmental agency training facilities in certain urban and rural zoning designations.  This includes changes to Section 14.300 Definitions, Section 14.618.230 Uses with Specific Standards, and the zone matrices for commercial, industrial, and rural zones.  In addition, the proposal amends the performance standards for government offices/maintenance facilities and law enforcement facilities.  A public virtual hearing via Microsoft Teams and/or telephone conference will be held on Thursday, August 27th, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. and concluding with the last speaker or at 4:00 p.m. whichever comes first.
