NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that there has been proposed to the Franklin County Planning Commission an application by Connell, WA, for a request to adjust their UGA boundaries, under Franklin County file # CPA 2018-02.


CPA 2018-02 is request from the City of Connell to adjust their UGA boundaries. This involves removing approximately 300 acres of land and adding approximately 80.27 acres of land to their existing UGA.


CPA 2018-02 is a non-specific site application, applying to multiple parcels within Franklin County. The general boundaries of the proposed UGA adjustment is the addition of property in the 1/2 West, Section 7, Township 14, Range 32, W.M., Franklin County, WA. Along with the removal of property in the 1/4 Southwest, Section 20, Township 14, Range 32, W.M., Franklin County, WA.


NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that Franklin County, WA, under Franklin County file #CPA 2018-04, is updating its comprehensive plan as part of the County’s required 10-Year Comp Plan Update. CPA 2018-04 was initiated by the County in 2018. This process has been delayed due to the City of Pasco’s initial application being remanded back for the completion of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), and needed revision of their comprehensive plan and UGA expansion application to reflect the results of the EIS. With said applications submitted, Franklin County is now moving forward with the finalization and adoption of its own comprehensive plan update for the 2018-2038, 20-year cycle. The primary focus of this hearing will be to review of the draft Franklin County Comprehensive Plan document, along with a review of the Public Comments Matrix and staff responses.



CPA 2018-04 is a non-specific site application, applying to the entirety of Franklin County.
