Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.
Purpose: These amendments to the Gorge Commission's National Scenic Area (NSA) Land Use Ordinance for Klickitat County make the ordinance consistent with recent amendments to the NSA management plan. The amendments add two definitions and specify when new development proposals must be reviewed for cumulative effects to scenic, cultural, natural, and recreational resources in the NSA. The amendments codify language already adopted into the management plan and largely codify the commission staff's existing practice.
