Rural Event Task Force

At the Council's direction, the director of Community Development is leading a task force created to explore possible code revisions in unincorporated Clark County. Issues to be contemplated include opening up current county code to allow property owners in R-5, R-10 and R-20 zones to engage in agri-tourism related activities not currently permitted.

The task force will be comprised of:

  • Three farm owners operating in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones 
  • Three winery owners operating in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones
  • Three residents living in the R-5, R-10 or R-20 zones who are unaffiliated with farms and wineries
  • Three residents who participate in a formal organization or board that represents the residents or businesses of Clark County

The task force will meet once a month for three to five months. The meetings will be in a hybrid format, meaning members can attend either in person or remotely. The meetings will take place on a weekday after 5pm at the Public Safety Complex, 505 NW 179th Street, Ridgefield, WA 98642. Meetings will begin in early 2024. It is anticipated that the task force will wrap up its work by or before the end of July 2024.
