Preserve Rural Burbank
ATTENTION BURBANK RESIDENTS! You may recall about a year ago, the Walla Walla County Commissioners held a public hearing here in Burbank to let us know they realized a loophole in the building code offered no limits as to how many homes could be built per acre in the county, and offered a plan to address the concern. To allow time to study the issue, they passed Interim Ordinance 471 limiting the construction of homes per acre to 4. It was a temporary measure set to expire August 7, 2019.
Since the study is not yet complete, the Commissioners have scheduled another public hearing for Monday, July 29, 2019 at 11:00AM at the Walla Walla County Commissioners' Chambers to hear public comment, and to decide on whether an extension of the ordinance is warranted. https://www.co.walla-walla.wa.us/document_center/commdev/planning/Public%20Notices/ZCA18-002%20Notice%20of%20BOCC%20Public%20Hearing%2007-29-19%20Interim%20Ordinance.pdf
We as a community must make our thoughts and voices known to the commission. You can write or email the commissioners and the community development department at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can attend the meeting in person and testify. You can also sign this online petition if you are in favor of extending the ordinance, preserving the maximum 4 homes per acre rule. The petition will be delivered to the commissioners at the hearing on July 29th.

The undersigned hereby request that the Commissioners of Walla Walla County do extend to the longest term possible ZCA18-002 – Interim Ordinance – Residential Density in Burbank Residential Zone Ordinance No. 471, adopted on August 7, 2018, which among other things limits the building of homes to a maximum of 4 units per acre.
