The City of Camas reviews its Comprehensive Plan and map once a year. The Commission will deliberate and forward their recommendation to City Council for a final decision. A final decision is anticipated to occur in September. The City received the following applications:

City File Number Project Name Location Status
CPA20-01 Washougal School District – Capital Facility Plan Amendment School District


CPA20-02 Mills Family at North Shore No Address. Tax Parcels 177884-000 and 177885-000 Active

In order to support changes to the comprehensive plan, Camas 2035, the city must determine that the current plan is deficient or should not continue in effect. Further, the city must agree that the proposed amendments comply with and promote the goals of the Growth Management Act.

The Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to review the applications, and forward a recommendation to City Council. The final step requires City Council to render a final decision on the proposals. Find out more about the legislative procedures online at Chapter 18.51 of the Camas Municipal Code.

Camas North Shore Subarea Planning Project

  • Phase 1: August 2019 to August 2020

A public hearing will be held before the Planning Commission at their virtual Zoom meeting on August 18th starting at 7:00 p.m. The hearing will be to receive comments and deliberate on the draft Vision Statement for the North Shore Subarea Plan. The Commission will forward their recommendation to City Council. You may submit written comments in advance or during the hearing. Instructions on how to participate will be available on the agenda at least seven days prior to the meeting. https://www.cityofcamas.us/yourgovernment/minuteagendavideo

  • Phase 2: (Tentative)  This phase will utilize the approved Vision Statement as a guide for developing the Subarea Plan. The subarea plan will include (in brief) roadway alignment, unique zoning regulations, and development standards.

Summary: The City of Camas has launched an effort to plan the future of the North Shore area. The subarea plan will answer two questions: What will the North Shore area be in 20 years and what is the path to get there?

The North Shore Subarea is generally bounded by Lacamas Lake to the south, the city limits to the north, Northeast 232nd Avenue to the west, and Everett Street to the east. The plan area will include the North Shore area that was annexed into the city in 2008, as well as the Bridge Village area that includes existing commercial and residential land on either side of Everett Street north of the bridge. Current zoning was put in place in 2012.

The North Shore Subarea Plan will include a community vision, conceptual road alignment, land use designations and a projection for future jobs and housing.

You may follow the project at the Camas North Shore website for up-to-date information on upcoming meetings or drafts to review. You can also sign up to receive email updates by sending any email to: info@northshore.com  

To date, the City hosted information tables at high school open houses and at the farmers market, conducted two online surveys, piloted a high school visioning exercise, and held two public meetings - a Community Forum and a Visioning Workshop. We met with individual property owners and other stakeholders for one-on-one interviews.
