Jefferson: County begins update process for comprehensive plan

PORT HADLOCK — It’s a monumental task put to those who run cities and counties across the state.

Jefferson County officials are taking the challenge of updating their comprehensive plan very seriously, according to several department heads who appeared Tuesday evening at a roundtable to inform the public about their progress.

About a dozen persons attended the session, held at the Washington State University Cooperative Extension office in Port Hadlock.

They heard from officials who are scrambling to make long- and short-range planning decisions on how growth will be managed in Jefferson County for the next 20 years.

Senior planner Josh Peters reminded attendees that Tuesday’s session was one of several public meetings scheduled to take place before the three county commissioners eventually adopt the comprehensive plan update.

That move will follow recommendations from the county Planning Commission.
