Notice requirements for zoning changes

For several years now, Rep. Angel (R-Port Orchard) has introduced legislation requiring specific procedures to notify owners of property that could be affected by any zoning changes proposed by local governments. This year’s bill (HB 1053) simply states, “Any city or town that is considering a proposal to rezone private property must ensure that, prior to any hearing at which the rezone will be considered, written notice of the proposal is provided to the owners of the real property for which the rezone would apply.”

We have been talking to Rep. Angel and receiving feedback on how to best address her concerns. We welcome your input and ideas. Please contact Dave Catterson.
