April 17th, 2017 - 01:30 pm

Port Angeles - The Board of County Commissioners are still going over some sticking points on the proposed draft ordinance amendment for vacation rentals and bed & breakfast development standards.

After last week's work session, commissioners requested that staff reevaluate the following development standards.

Increase the number of bedroom units from 5 to 8, the elimination of the requirement that the total number of bedroom units not exceed 45% or not to exceed 3,200 square feet, a common roofline requirement for the structure, whether the manager of a bed and breakfast has to reside on the parcel or in the structure, building inspections, and defining a kitchen for a B & B.

by the time discussions had concluded, bedroom size, structure size and conditional use permits for structures built on large areas of land in the county's west end were the areas referred back to the planning commission for further discussion.

Steve Gray, a planning manager with the county, said that he would go to the planning commission with these remaining considerations. Gray had no prediction on the time it would take for the planning commission to come back with their recommendations.

The Clallam County Planning Commission is a nine-member, volunteer advisory panel that makes recommendations to the Commissioners on land use planning and regulatory issues.
