The County seeks community input about future growth in subareas of Kittitas County and the City of
Kittitas. The County will study how much growth can be supported, presence of sewer, water and transportation
facilities, and land use designations for
urban areas. All of these activities will be
completed before the end of 2009.
Scheduled meetings include public workshops in County subareas,
joint meetings of the BOCC/Planning Commission and public hearings of both the BOCC and Planning Commission
in October and November.
At the first set of public workshops, draft assessments for all five subareas
and Kittitas were presented, along with draft recommendations for
agricultural lands criteria.
At the second set of public workshops, recommendations
to achieve GMA compliance will be made, including future land use designation of all five County subareas.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
