Notice of Public Hearing

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Stanwood Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on the proposed Floodplain Regulations Code Amendment on Monday, May 11, 2020 at 6:30 PM via an online meeting due to the coronavirus pandemic. Directions on how to join the virtual on-line meeting can be found on the City of Stanwood’s website at

The Public Hearing is to consider a code amendment to the Stanwood Municipal Code Chapter 17.120 Frequently Flooded Areas. The city is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to adopt the most current flood hazard map for the City of Stanwood as well as any associated development regulations to be consistent with FEMA standards in order to maintain participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The City of Stanwood issued a SEPA Determination of Non-Significance on February 8, 2020, regarding this project.  The lead agency for this proposal has determined that it does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.  Accordingly, an environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c).  This decision was made after review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with the City.  The DNS and other related information is available to the public on request.

All materials pertaining to this project may be examined or copies obtained at the Community Development Department at Stanwood City Hall, 10220 270th St. NW during normal business hours 9am-5pm.
