Call for Applications
The City of Oak Harbor is initiating its annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process. The amendment process begins with a call for applications from the public requesting changes to the Plan. The requests are then compiled into a docket and reviewed by the Planning Commission and City Council. The City Council approves a final docket before the end of March 2018. Request for changes can be made to any aspect of the Comprehensive Plan. However, the application requirements differ for private sponsored amendments and public amendments. An example of a private amendment is a request to change a land use designation for a property, and an example of a public amendment would be a request to change the density requirements for a particular zoning district which can impact all properties in that district. For more information on public amendments please contact City staff. Information regarding this can also be found in the Oak Harbor Municipal Code (OHMC) Chapter 18.15.060. Links to the OHMC can be found on the City’s website homepage www.oakharbor.org.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Comprehensive Plan Amendments. The application for private amendments (land use changes) is currently available at the City Hall and on the City’s webpage under the Development Services tab and Planning Division permit applications page.
The deadline for applications is Friday, December 1, 2017 at 5pm.
The process to consider amendments to the Comprehensive Plan is a year long process. All applications received will be placed on a docket with other mandatory and discretionary items. The docket will then be reviewed by the Planning Commission (January 2018) and the City Council (March 2018) through a public hearing process before approval. The process is designed to provide opportunities for public participation at various stages of the process.
Please contact Cac Kamak, Senior Planner, at (360) 279-4514 if you have questions.
