Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
Transportation concurrency requires development to have sufficient transportation facilities in place
to support the increased traffic caused by the development.
RCW 36.70A.070(6)(b) requires
jurisdictions to "adopt and enforce ordinances which prohibit development approval if the development
causes the level of service on a locally owned transportation facility to decline below the standards
in the comprehensive plan unless transportation improvements or strategies to accommodate the impacts
of development are made concurrent with the development."
Kittitas County adopted a transportation concurrency
on November 15, 2011. The ordinance is
of the Kittitas County Code.
Public Works reviews transportation concurrency applications and determines whether adequate transportation
facilities exist. Below are the transportation concurrency determination findings that Public Works
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
