Smith, director of the Snohomtsh County Planning Department, announced that in response to the requests of a number of rural comm~mtty groups his staff has prepared a draft of a new 2 1/2 acre minimum lot size rural zoning category. Smith stated that throughout the past year public concern has been voiced that the county has no zoning category that appropriately pro- tects those rural areas of the county that are presently unsuited to small~ lot residential development due to their location and lack of public facilities and services. The two existing rural classifications are a ten-acre minimum lot size for areas of prime agricultural land and a one acre minimum size for certain areas that are definitely suited for smaller lot development in the foreseeable future. Smith stated that this leaves: a vast area of the county where small lot development is far in the future without any appropriate zone to ap- ply to it. He mentioned that other counties have catagories similar to this 2 1/2 acre proposal and have found them to be quite successful. The director said that the new zone could also be applied to certain lands that are in- appropriate for high density development due to their being wet or steep or a natural feature of major significance., Any persons wishing to review the proposal may obtain a copy from the Snohomtsh County Planning Department office in the County Court- house. Although not yet scheduled, it is antici- pated that a public hearing will be held the fourth Tuesday in February. ! ~o~_o ~.,avo~u,.
