Toledo Planning Commission met 7 p.m. in Council Chambers last night to elect chair and co-chair for 2017, approve 35 business license renewals, and commit to a comprehensive update to Washington State’s mandated Growth Management Act.
Rick Lovell was elected Chair, Paul (Mackenzie?) co-chair for 2017 following a brief discussion.
35 business licenses were approved for renewal.
City Clerk Michelle Whitten addressed Toledo’s 24-month extension to comprehensively update their Growth Management Plan (GMA). Hiring a professional consultant to help with changes in laws that must be incorporated into the new document is outside budget constraints, so a series of regular workshops will be scheduled to tackle the task by sections.
As Toledo currently has no regulations on fireworks, as nearby communities do, Michelle asked if the Commission would consider establishing a policy for handling such requests proactively. State law currently requires 12 months notice on permits.
Meeting adjourned 7:24 p.m.
