The Klickitat County Planning Department has issued a "mitigated determination of non-significance" (MDNS) on a proposal to construct a new bridge across Rattlesnake Creek, and is considering issuing a shoreline conditional use application for the project.
The proponent of the project is Patrick A. Tomlin of Parkdale, Ore. The bridge is proposed to provide Tomlin with access to his property, which is located about 2.1 miles up Rattlesnake Road. In addition, according to Tomlin's application, "a road will be needed to access the bridge."
The Planning Department is accepting comments on the MDNS until Feb. 2.
In a Jan. 11 memorandum, the Planning Department explained that the hearing on the proposed shoreline conditional use application is scheduled to go before the Klickitat County Planning Commission on March 19.
Any comments "relating to the shoreline conditional use application will be entered into the record of any public hearings that may be held prior to taking action on the application" will be accepted as well. The deadline to include comments on the shoreline conditional use application in the staff report is March 8.
Written comments can be sent to: Klickitat County Planning Department, 228 W. Main Street, MS-17, Goldendale, Wash., 98620.
The deadline for appeals on the MDNS is Feb. 2 at 5 p.m. For more information on this proposal, contact the Planning Department, 1-800-765-7239 (toll-free) or (509) 773-5703.
