Staff is not proposing any change to the policies of the Environmental Resources Element of the Comprehensive Plan. However, the proposed map modifications related to the Comprehensive Plan will include:

  • Displaying environmental resource information in municipalities and county subdivisions on official maps to provide a more comprehensive understanding of resources within the geographic boundaries of the county;
  • Correcting issues identified in the Wetlands & Riparian Areas Maps and the Rare Plant Areas & Significant Natural Communities Maps;
  • Updating information in the Species of Special Concern and Significant Natural Communities List and associated narrative;
  • Removing Critical Wildlife Habitat #36 from the Critical Wildlife Habitat Map, based on the approved update to the Carolyn Holmberg Preserve at Rock Creek Farm Management Plan in 2020.

In accordance with BCCP policy, staff is requesting POSAC’s review and recommendation to the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission ultimately approves changes to the BCCP and the supporting elements.
