EYE ON CLALLAM: Public hearing set on interim zoning restricting structure size

Clallam County commissioners will conduct a public hearing on a six-month extension of interim zoning that restricts structure sizes in rural residential zones to 10,000 square feet at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The three commissioners will open their Tuesday business meeting at 10 a.m. in the commissioners’ boardroom (160) on the main floor of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

County planners are developing a permanent ordinance to regulate vacation rentals and bed-and-breakfast inns.

Scheduled action items include:

• A land and easement purchase for the Olympic Discovery Trail between Freshwater Bay and Camp Hayden roads.

• An agreement with the state Office of the Courts for reimbursement for travel and training during the implementation of a new case management system.
