Jefferson: County looks to its future on growth

It’s been a busy year for Jefferson County planners.

At the behest of county commissioners and planning groups, they’ve been developing regulations that would increase the amount of commercial and light-industrial land in several areas of the county.

The biggest changes — part of an effort to boost economic development — would come in Brinnon, Glen Cove, and the Tri-Area.

Commercial zones at the major crossroads in Chimacum and Discovery Bay would also be expanded.

On Wednesday, citizens weighed in on the changes, making their case for and against 10 suggested land-use amendments during a public hearing held by the county Planning Commission in Chimacum.

Around 30 people attended.
