Project Date
December 2020 - Present

LDC was hired as the lead consultant to assist Whitman County with their 2021 Comprehensive Plan Update project. The County has not completed a full update of the Plan since 1978 and has only undergone several amendments since then. Although Whitman County does not fully plan under the State’s Growth Management Act, the County Board of County Commissioners and Staff still desired to update the plan to reflect the vision and goals of their largely rural community. This update to the Plan will serve as a guidebook for the next 20 years and beyond.

Going Above the Standard

Even during the pandemic, LDC and Whitman County have been successful in communicating with and involving the public through various remote methods of engagement including online public meetings, public surveys, and website updates. Later in the project, subject to social distancing regulations, LDC anticipates in-person workshops that will provide additional opportunities for Whitman County residents to participate in the process.
