West Plains Annexation Zoning and Land Use Designations

Comprehensive Plan land use designations and zoning for the proposed West Plains Annexation area have been adopted and will become effective at the time of annexation. The existing County Comprehensive Plan land use designations have been converted as closely as possible to City of Spokane land use designations.  Existing County zoning designations have also been converted as closely as possible to City of Spokane zoning designations.  See the conversion tables below. 

Additionally, Airfield Overlay Zoning and Airfield Comprehensive Plan Policy will apply to the proposed West Plains Annexation area (Click here for information on the adopted Airfield Overlay Zoning).
