Clallam County LAMIRDS Report

Updated January 7, 2009

Introduction

As a result of a required review and update under the Growth Management Act, the County designated 46 LAMIRDs in 2007, as reflected in the original 2006 LAMIRD Report.   Futurewise and Dry Creek Coalition challenged a number of those LAMIRD designations to the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board (WWGMHB).  In April of 2008, the WWGMHB found 20 LAMIRDs invalid or non-compliant.  The County reviewed those LAMIRDs during the 2008 GMA Compliance Proceedings, and on October 21, 2008, the Board of County Commissioners adopted a number of amendments, which resulted in the de-designation of four LAMIRDs (SW Carlsborg, Lyre River, Quillayute Prairie, and Little Quillayute Prarie), the designation of one new LAMIRD (Blyn), and changes to the boundaries of sixteen LAMIRDs.  For an explanation of the 2008 amendments, see the 2008 LAMIRD Supplement.  For a county-wide map showing the location of all current LAMIRDs (de-designated LAMIRDs are not shown), see Map CCC 31.02.263(A). 

Below are links to detailed maps of all currently designated LAMIRDs as well as the four LAMIRDs removed from LAMIRD designation as a result of the 2008 GMA Comploiance Proceedings.  The areas are listed in approximate geographical order from east to west (except for Blyn which is the last LAMIRD listed under the Sequim Dungeness Planning Region).  The various notations in red that follow the area names have the following meanings.

  • No notation: LAMIRDs that were found valid/compliant by the WWGMHB in April of 2008.  No changes were made in October of 2008.
  • Notation "Designated as LAMIRD in 2008": LAMIRDs that were added by the Board of County Commissioners in October of 2008.  The listed maps show the amendments that were made, including any zoning changes;
  • Notation "As amended in 2008": LAMIRDs that were found invalid/ noncompliant by the WWGMHB in April of 2008 and amended by the Board of County Commissioners in October of 2008.  The listed maps show the amendments that were made, including any zoning changes;
  • Notation "Removed from LAMIRD designation in 2008": Previous LAMIRDs that were found invalid/noncompliant by the WWGMHB in April of 2008 and which were de-designated by the Board of County Commissioners in October of 2008.  The listed maps show how the de-designated areas were rezoned.
