All items were heard and recommendations were made for each item. No members <br />of the public were present for the public hearing. No written comment or testimony was received for any <br />of the items. A summary of the Planning Commission’s recommendation is included below for each <br />item. <br /> <br />The public has had access to the proposed docket items at the Kittitas County Community Development <br />Services Comprehensive Plan web page, http://www.co.kittitas.wa.us/cds/comp-plan/default.aspx.
