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.
