Growth Management Compliance

After the County adopted the Unified Development Code (UDC) in December 2000, a petition for review (PFR) was filed with the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board (WWGMHB) concerning whether groundwater protections against seawater intrusion were compliant with the Growth Management Act (GMA).

A lengthy compliance process has ended and case number 01-2-0015 is closed. The WWGMHB issued a Compliance Order on March 29, 2004 that concludes that Jefferson County is in compliance with the GMA concerning protections against seawater intrusion. The following documents are directly related to the compliance process, posted in chronological order beginning with the most recent. Refer to Process and Document Archive for additional documents.
