North Bend to hold Town Hall on Growth and Development

As the City of North Bend deals with growing pains, city officials are inviting community members to a Town Hall on Tuesday, April 10th starting at 6PM at the Mount Si Senior Center, 411 Main Ave S in North Bend.

This meeting is open to the public and according to the city, will provide information about growth and development in North Bend and answer resident questions on the topics.

“Many of our residents have questions and concerns about what the City is doing to balance land owners’ property rights to build against the community’s desire to preserve the small-town nature of our town,” David Miller, Community Economic Development Director, said. “Town Hall meetings provide an excellent opportunity to educate the community about this important topic and give them a chance to provide valuable feedback.”

According to a city announcement, the goal of the meeting is “to give an overview on the Growth Management Act in Washington as a guide to manage growth and development, as well as provide an overview of the State Environmental Policy Act which provides regulations for protecting the environment.”

Participants will also learn about City Council’s efforts to preserve the rural nature of North Bend.
