Request a Policy, Map, or Code Amendment
Mason County Planning Services welcomes your comments and suggestions on all our work products, plans, maps and the County Municipal Code. The Growth Management Act at RCW 36.70A.470(2) allows any interested person, including applicants, citizens, hearing examiners, and staff of other agencies, to request amendments to the Mason County Comprehensive Plan/Zoning Map or suggest Comprehensive Plan policy amendments or development regulation amendments. Mason County’s development regulations are contained in Mason County Code Title 17.
Requests and suggestions must be made on the following forms:
- Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment / Rezone Request
- Comprehensive Plan Policy or Code Amendment Suggestion
Deadline: requests and suggestions are due by May 31st, 2018.
Requests received after that date will not be considered until the following year’s docket. Docketing is procedural only and does not constitute a decision by the Board of County Commissioners as to whether the amendment will ultimately be approved. Amendments are usually concluded by the end of the year following the request. State law generally prohibits the County from amending its Comprehensive Plan more than once per year.
