County planning commission will consider land rezone near Drayton Harbor
At its Thursday, July 28, meeting, the Whatcom County Planning Commission will consider whether to recommend a request to rezone about 472 acres south of Drayton Harbor to the county council. County council member Sam Crawford put in the request to change the land's current zoning, which allows one dwelling unit per 10 acres (R10) to zoning that would allow one unit per five acres (R5). The land was originally zoned for four units per acre (UR4) but was downzoned in November 2009 when it was removed from Blaine's urban growth area (UGA).
