Annual Reviews

Body

The Annual Review process allows property owners to request changes to their property’s comprehensive plan and zoning designations. These changes could allow property owners to use their property for activities not currently permitted under its existing designation.

Once an Annual Review application has been submitted, staff reviews the proposal and provides a recommendation to the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission reviews and provides a recommendation to the Clark County Council. The County Council holds a hearing on each application for review and issues a final decision.

Pre-application Conferences

Clark County requires a pre-application conference before accepting a formal application for all Annual Reviews. The conference provides an opportunity for property owners or their representatives to explore their situation with county staff. Members of the public may attend, however, the schedule does not allow for public comment during this time. Pre-application conferences for Annual Reviews are scheduled between Oct. 1 - Dec. 31 for the following year.

Public Meet​ings

Amendments to the comprehensive plan, map, and development regulations require a legislative process which includes public work sessions and hearings before the Planning Commission and County Council.  Depending on the project, other informational meetings may occur, such as open houses or presentations to other county advisory boards.

All Planning Commission and Council work sessions and hearings are held at the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St., sixth-floor, Vancouver and are televised by CVTV.

Other meetings and presentations will be posted on the project's webpage (links above).
