SUMMARY STATEMENT OR LEGAL NOTICE LANGUAGE:

 

The Council has expressed an interest in increasing affordable housing options, in particular by amending the Whatcom County Code to allow for use of tiny homes, and also by allowing duplexes in Planned Unit Developments. Staff has developed some draft language for both of these and wishes to know whether the Council agrees with the tack taken before scheduling review and a hearing with the Planning Commission.
