Sequim: Shipley property rezoning opposed

SEQUIM — The proposed rezoning of approximately 53 acres of property on the west side of Priest Road was strongly opposed Monday.

The proposed rezoning would increase the housing density of the land.

At least 15 of the 85 people in attendance stood before the microphone during a public hearing in the Sequim Community Center as the City Council accepted testimony on recommended amendments to the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

Another six individuals spoke in support of the application filed by land owner Leo Shipley.
