County to simplify zoning
More than 170,000 King County land owners received a letter recently detailing how the county plans to simplify its zoning regulations. Also, public hearings and community meetings will be held.
Currently, 109,000 parcels of land in unincorporated King County are subject to "P-Suffix conditions," regulations that go beyond those called for in the county's zoning code. Under the proposal, the number of parcels requiring these special standards would be cut byapproximately 95 percent.
By eliminating the P-Suffix conditions, King County will reduce redundancy, providing residents with a more consistent and fair applicatoin of development regulations. Residents can access information on the World Wide Web relating to their specific property at http://www.metrokc.gov/ddes/gis.
The community workshop in this area is scheduled for April 2 from 6-8 p.m. at the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services, 3600 136th Pl. SE (Hearing Room #1), Bellevue.
