Call for Issues, Changes, Amendments Pursuant to Forks Municipal Code Chapter 17.115, the City of Forks is hereby soliciting proposed changes and amendments to the Forks Zoning Code – FMC Title 17. Requested changes could include: Applicants wanting to obtain change of zoning designations, or change of existing zoning boundaries; Clarifi cations of existing code language; Additions to the land use matrix (FMC 17.15.060); etc . Proposals can be for property within the City already subject to the Forks Zoning Code, as well as property within the Forks Urban Growth Area where zoning has been proposed and would take place upon annexation of such properties into the City of Forks. Individuals wanting proposals to be considered by the Planning Commission need to submit their proposed zoning amendment request in writing to the City prior to 31 December 2011. If the proponent is requesting a change to a property’s current zoning designation, the application must include a list of the name(s), mailing address(es), and property description of the legal owners of property subject to the requested change. The City may propose modifi cations to the zoning code during this period of time as well addressing interpretation issues, notice requirements, and/or other issues raised over the past year. If time permits, the City may also create a revision of the project list associated with the Capital Facility element of the comprehensive plan. Such a project list would encompass all City owned facilities in a format applicable to potential funding sources. In January, all received requests for amendments will be reviewed by City Staff, as well as reviewed under the State Environmental Policy Act. At its meeting in February 2012, or possibly at a subsequent month, the Forks Planning Commission may hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments. Following that hearing, the Commission would make recommendations on the proposed amendments to the Forks City Council. Any action by the Council would only occur following a properly noted public hearing. If you need information on the zoning code, information on how your property is zoned, or proposed for zoning (outside of the City of Forks but within the Forks Urban Growth Area), or if you have any questions, please contact Mr. Fleck at 360/374-5412, ext. 245; or via e-mail at Individuals wanting to obtain notices of meetings of the Forks Planning Commission and/or City Council regarding the amendments to the Forks Zoning Code can contact Mr. Fleck as well.

Legal Description The NW 1/4, the SW 1/4, and also the remaining portions of the SE 1/4 currently not within the City limits within the NW 1/4 of Section 17, Township 28 North, Range 13 West, W.M., of Clallam County; And, The NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 17, Township 28 North, Range 13 West, W.M., of Clallam County. Having Tax Id. Parcel Nos.:  Consisting of approximately 158.5 acres. The County’s Boundary Review Board having taken no action on the proposed annexation, the Council would be able to proceed with their taking action on the proposed annexation. The City Council had originally scheduled the public hearing on this proposed annexation for 24 October 2011. However, the Council agreed to reschedule the public hearing in order to allow City staff to affi rm that in fact a parcel that had originally been identifi ed in the County’s parcel database as being owned by the Dahlgren family was actually owned by the Saunder’s family. In conversations with the Saunder’s family representative, it was learned that an error had been made in the database that had misidentifi ed the legal owner of a parcel that was in fact owned by the Saunder’s family. Fred Saunders, representative for the family, affi rmed that there was no opposition for the inclusion of that parcel in the proposed annexation as described in the notices and the legal description associated with this effort. As a result, the rescheduled public hearing on the proposed annexation and the sixty percent petition will occur on 14 November 2011. At the public hearing, the City Council will allow the interested public to voice their opinions about the proposed annexation. Following the hearing the Council may also decide whether or not to annex the property described above via City ordinance. The public is invited to attend and provide public comment. Individuals with questions should contact Rod Fleck, City Attorney/Planner, at 360/374-5412, ext. 245. Individuals requiring special needs in order to participate in the public hearing should contact Mr. Fleck prior to the meeting. Published Forks Forum, Thursday, November 3, 2011
