Klickitat County Compliance Study

The Gorge Commission is conducting a broad study of all tax lots within the National Scenic Area in Klickitat County. The purposes of the study are to determine whether existing development within the study area was required to obtain a Director’s Decision under the Gorge Commission’s National Scenic Area Ordinance (Commission Rule 350-81 and prior iterations of the rule), and to determine if approved development is in compliance with the conditions of approval included with the Director’s Decision. Staff anticipates that the study will conclude in February 2022.
