Cherry Point Amendments


​On February 27, 2018, the Whatcom County Council passed Resolution 2018-005 docketing a proposal to "Amend the Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan and Whatcom County Code to address ways the County may limit the negative impacts on public safety, transportation, the economy, and the environment from crude oil, coal, liquefied petroleum gases, and natural gas exports from the Cherry Point Urban Growth Area, in accordance with Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan Policy 2CC-16."​​

​On April 24, 2018, the Whatcom County Council passed Resolution 2018-015 requesting the County Executive to direct staff to draft legislation relating to processing and approval of major project permits in the Cherry Point Urban Growth Area.​

​The County Council's Special Committee of the Whole met on May 8, May 22, June 5, June 19, July 10, July 24, September 11, September 25, and October 9 and will meet again this fall to discuss this project with staff.  County Council agendas are on-line and can be accessed by clicking here.  Preliminary draft Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code amendments are available here.

​​​After Council review/modification of the preliminary draft amendments, they will be reviewed under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).  There will also be a series of public meetings.  At a minimum, these will include:

​​​*  A "town hall" meeting;
​​*  A Whatcom County Planning Commission hearing; and
​​*  A County Council hearing.
