Planning Clearance & Regulations
On July 19, 2017 Cowlitz County updated it’s Comprehensive Plan land use designations county-wide, which includes determination for minimum lot sizes outside of the zoned areas of the County. Until the EPIC program is updated, it will not return the correct comprehensive plan designation; please contact our office and we make sure you get the most current comprehensive plan information. We are working hard to make sure these changes are reflected in the EPIC program. Thank you for your patience!
