Kittitas County Code Update

Kittitas County
Project Date

LDC is assisting Kittitas County with a code update to integrate the City of Ellensburg’s code into Kittitas County code for use within the Urban Growth Area. This project is implementing an Interlocal Agreement (ILA) that Kittitas County has entered with the City of Ellensburg. LDC’s work has included both draft and the final code development as well as working with city of Ellensburg and Kittitas County staff on the preparation and presentation of materials at public meetings and hearings before the County Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners.

Going Above the Standard

Our understanding of code implementation brought strong value to this project. While including City of Ellensburg Code provisions into county code shows strong coordination between the city and county, integrating two codes is a complicated process. Our approach was to draft code that implemented the ILA but also made it easy for the county to implement and the customer to navigate.
