CLALLAM: Commissioners hear more objection to areas ordinance

Clallam County commissioners came under fire from property owners Tuesday during public hearings on the Critical Areas Ordinance.

Commissioners convened three public hearings at the county courthouse in Port Angeles to hear from residents on ordinance amendments ordered by the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board.

The hearings board is forcing the county to scrap reduced stream buffer zones outlined in its Dec. 28, 1999, ordinance for minor new developments.

Despite the reprimand, the county was largely praised for the bulk of its ordinance, adopted to comply with the state Growth Management Act.
