2020 Oak Harbor Comprehensive Plan Amendments 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 2020.
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) Section 18.15.060. Links to the OHMC can be found on the Citys website homepage www.oakharbor.org.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendments.
The application for private amendments (land use changes) is currently available at City Hall and on the Citys webpage under the Development Services tab and Planning Division permit applications page. The deadline for applications is Monday, December 2, 2019 at 5pm.
The process to consider amendments to the Comprehensive Plan is a yearlong process. All applications received will be placed on a preliminary docket with other mandatory and discretionary items. The docket will then be reviewed and possibly refined by the Planning Commission (January 2020) and the City Council (March 2020) through a public hearing process before approval.
The process is designed to provide opportunities for public participation at various stages of the review. Please contact Cac Kamak, Senior Planner, at (360) 279-4514 if you have questions.

Hibler Bank Stabilization Project
File # PL19-0450
Project Description: for the Hibler Bank Stabilization Project. The project proposal seeks to provide bank stabilization at the site and reduce the potential for increased erosion over time and a long term solution. High flows on the Samish River during the winter months transported a large tree with rootwad downstream that came to rest adjacent to a residence off Ershig Road. The LWD then racked additional debris and caused high rates of erosion along the right bank property. The County relocated the log jam under APP ID: 18018 in May of 2019 to avoid further erosion. The project will use bio-engineered techniques including the installation of large woody debris and coir lifts to stabilize the bank.
Proponent: Skagit County Public Works, c/o Emily Derenne, 1800 Continental Place, Mount Vernon, WA 98273.

SEP A Environmental Review: The City of Langley has reviewed the proposed project for probable adverse environmental impacts and expects to issue a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS). This determination is based on the following findings and conclusions: The total amount of excavation for the deck and tight line is approximately 7 cu ft and all excavation will be done by hand The City of Langley Shoreline Master Plan requires a tight line be installed when more than 200 SF of impervious cover is being added. The geotechnical reports prepared by Associated Earth Sciences, July 8, 2019 and August 16, 2019 recommends a tight line be installed.

Property Boundary Maintenance Ditch
File # PL19-0451
Project Description: Notice is hereby given that on September 9, 2019, Skagit County Planning and Development Services approved the independent SEPA checklist for the County Property Boundary Maintenance Project. The project will reestablish a historic ditch around the perimeter of the County property. This will convey water off the property directly to Red Creek.
Skagit County has a 20-acre parcel north of a private parcel on Helmick Road. This parcel has been used as mitigation for the 2007 widening of Helmick Road. As the County has enhanced the wetlands and allowed beaver activity to thrive on the parcel it has caused additional flooding and water retention on the private property to the south. This has negatively impacted the adjacent property’s farming capabilities. Reestablishment of the historic perimeter ditch will allow natural process to exist on the County property while not impacting agricultural viability of the neighboring properties. The perimeter ditch is about 1,600 linear feet. The project work will involve approximately 1,100 linear feet and remove no more than 125 cubic yards.

Project Location: The project is located north of 25588 Helmick Road, Sedro-Woolley, within a portion of Section 17, Township 35N, Range 5E W.M., situated within Skagit County, Washington. (P39252)

Construction of a 30 x 110-Foot-Long Wharf
PL17-0495 for Rozema Boat Works
On July 23, 2019, the Skagit County Hearing Examiner approved, with conditions, a shoreline substantial development, conditional use and variance application for the proposed construction of a wharf and building addition to allow fabrication of vessels up to 80 feet in length, which will allow the applicant to compete in a diversifying economic/industrial environment and to promote an efficient and safe work environment. Construction of the wharf and building addition will provide for an enclosed work area and allow completed vessels to be safely constructed onsite. The wharf would offer temporary moorage for shipping barges so that finished vessels can be safely loaded and transported from the facility.
On August 26, 2019, the Department of Ecology issued its decision on the shoreline permit applications to approve construction of a 30-foot by 110-foot-long wharf parallel to the shoreline of an existing boat manufacturing facility. The project includes removal of an existing building and construction of an L-shaped addition to the existing main boat fabrication facility. Additional conditions are included in the Ecology decision.
