2020 Comprehenseive Plan Update

The City of Colville formally began the comprehensive plan update process in late January 2020. The City Council, Zoning Board and Planning Commission held joint workshops on January 28, 2020 and February 19, 2020 to discuss the comprehensive plan update.  All meetings were open to the public and public participation was encouraged and appreciated.

In mid-February the planning/consultant team facilitated a series of community stakeholder meetings focused on elements of the comprehensive plan (economic development, land use, parks & recreation, transportation, historic preservation etc.). On April 21, 2020 the consultant team led City Council and key stakeholders through a process to verify goals and polices to be considered for the comprehensive plan.

On April 29, 2020, the planning team led a technical working group of stakeholders to complete the comprehensive plan “future land use map”. The City Council, Zoning Board and Planning Commission held joint workshops on May 12, 2020 to finalize the plan vision statement and the goals and policies. 

The Planning Commission met for a Public Hearing June 10, 2020 for a review of the Draft 2020 City of Colville Comprehensive Plan and will meet again June 30, 2020 for a potential final review and recommendation to City Council.

During these final stages of review, the City encourages suggestions and comments from citizens regarding the draft comprehensive plan.  The Draft 2020 City of Colville Comprehensive Plan can be found on the City website at www.colville.wa.us.  Written suggestions may be submitted to the Colville Building & Planning Department office located at 170 S.
