PLANNING COMMISSION MEETINGS UPDATES

Due to COVID-19, the Planning Commission's monthly meetings will be held in a variety of formats depending on the needs of the public and the Commission members.  We anticipate more in-person meetings with virtual or hybrid options if the need arises.  If you are interested in attending a meeting, please verify if it will be in person, virtual, or hybrid.

About the Commission

The Yakima County Planning Commission is a 7 member citizen body appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to make recommendations to the board on long range planning for the unincorporated areas of the county. The Planning Commission reviews and conducts public hearings on proposed changes to Yakima County's Comprehensive Plan - Horizon 2040, development regulations, and hears public testimony prior to making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.
