NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 30, 2022, the City of Lynden received an application from Dave Timmer, City Planner, regarding the property described below:

The City of Lynden is proposing several updates to the Lynden Municipal Code that are seeking to foster the appropriate development of mixed-use areas (Residential/Commercial) within the City.

A public hearing with the Lynden Planning Commission has been scheduled for September 22, 2022.  Any persons wishing to comment on the applications, or the proposal may do by submitting their written comments to Heidi Gudde, Planning Director, 300 4th Street, Lynden 98264, by September 21, 2022, or by attending the public hearing to be held at 7:00 P.M., September 22, 2022, at the City of Lynden City Hall Annex, 205 4th Street.  Persons with questions regarding the project may contact Heidi Gudde at 354-5532.

CITY OF LYNDEN LEGAL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

REGARDING THE EXTENSION OF THE ORDINANCE

ESTABLISHING A MORATORIUM ON

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE CSL ZONE

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Lynden City Council will be holding a public hearing and will be taking public input regarding extension of a moratorium on residential development within the CSL zone.  

Development code LMC 19.23.020 permits multi-family residential development within a mixed-use setting, however, residential development is occurring within the CSL zone at such high densities it may be frustrating the purpose of the CSL zone, Comprehensive Goal H-2, Community Value Statement 4C, and other goals and policies in the Comprehensive Plan.  The zone was intended for community-scale commercial use, residential development within CSL zones may not be located in areas which provide adequate amenities to future residents of these developments.  To assure that the issue of residential development in the CSL zone is addressed consistently with the objectives of the Comprehensive Plan and zoning code, and with the public health, safety, and welfare of the community, a moratorium on residential development in the CSL zone has been established and is proposed to continue while code updates are finalized.

A public hearing with the Lynden City Council has been scheduled for September 19, 2022.  Any persons wishing to comment on the proposal may do so by submitting their written comments to Heidi Gudde, Planning Director, 300 4th Street, Lynden, 98264 by 5:00 P.M. on September 19, 2021, or by attending the public hearing to be held at 7:00 P.M., that same evening.
