The City is in the process of updating the rules and regulations that apply to development on or near the shorelines of the Green and White Rivers. These updates are part of a periodic review that is required by the WA State Department of Ecology. Updates to the City’s code that regulate critical areas, such as wetlands, streams, steep slopes, and aquifer recharge areas, are also required and included in this update process. City Staff began working with the Planning Commission in July of 2018 to complete these updates which are now available for review on the City’s website at www.auburnwa.gov/smp. If you have any questions or comments on these changes or the process(es) involved please contact the City’s Planning Department at [email protected]. The comment period for these changes runs from August 13, 2019 through September 12, 2019.
