From the Department of Permitting and Environmental Review, a notice of a public meeting on Vashon on Wednesday, February 19 concerning amendments to the Vashon Town Plan that would allow Marijuana growing, processing and retail uses in CB Zoned Properties and Marijuana growing and processing on Industrial zoned properties.
King County Department of Permitting and Environmental Review (DPER). Public Meeting. Wednesday, February 19, 2014, 7:00 p.m. McMurray Middle School Multi-purpose Room, 9329 Cemetery Road SW, Vashon, Washington 98070
Proposed Amendments to the P-suffix conditions attached to the CB and I zones Identified in the Vashon Town Plan (2012 King County Comprehensive Plan) adding marijuana uses as allowed uses and possible.
On December 9, 2013, the King County Council adopted Ordinance 17710 to allow marijuana uses in CB (Commercial Business) and I (Industrial) zones. More specifically, marijuana growing, processing and retail sales uses are allowed as permitted or conditional uses in CB zones. Marijuana growing and processing uses are allowed as permitted or conditional uses in I zones. The County Council’s intent was that marijuana uses be permitted in CB and I zones throughout the County.
The Vashon Town Plan, a part of King County’s 2012 Comprehensive Plan, adds a “P-suffix” zoning overlay to the CB and I zoned property on Vashon and Maury Islands. The P-suffix specifically identifies and limits the uses which may occur in Vashon’s CB-P and I-P zones.
This proposal is to follow the County Council’s intent and to amend the Vashon Town Plan section of the Comprehensive Plan as follows:
VS-P29: Vashon Town Plan – Restricted Uses for CB Zoned Properties
ADD: Recreational Marijuana growing, processing and retail uses, subject to applicable state law
VS-P30: Vashon Town Plan – Restricted Uses for I Zoned Properties
ADD: Recreational Marijuana growing and processing uses, subject to applicable state law
These proposed amendments would apply to all the CB-P and I-P zoned property on Vashon and Maury Islands.
DPER asks for your comments on this proposal and invites you to attend the public meeting on Wednesday, February 19.
Comments on the amendment can also be emailed by Feb. 26 to Cathy Ortiz at Cathy.firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Cathy Ortiz, King County Department of Permitting and Environmental Review, 35030 SE Douglas Street, Suite 210, Snoqualmie, WA 98065.
