GIPAC: Draft Minutes, Dec 7, 2020 Meeting

December 7, 2020 Meeting of the

Guemes Island Planning Advisory Committee



Hal Rooks called the meeting to order at 6:35pm.  Present were board members Hal Rooks, Nancy Fox, Michael Brown, Allen Bush, Kathy Malley, Patty Rose and Steve Orsini.  Also present were Barb Ohms, and Michael and Joanne Gray.

Draft agenda was approved.

Draft minutes were approved.

Treasurer’s report – Checking account $4,833.81.  Roz Glasser account $9,162.10.

Updates/New business -  Hal Rooks will set up a meeting with new Commissioner Peter Browning to get him up to speed on GIPAC history and priorities.  He asked Nancy Fox, Kathy Malley and Allen Bush to join him, probably via Zoom...


A discussion ensued as to how to proceed with P1 and P2 moving forward.  It looks like P1 will be dealt with administratively, but GIPAC will have to monitor what that looks like coming out of the Planning Department.  P2 was not approved, and the board discussed possible actions moving forward. 


GIPAC discussed priorities for 2021, including RUE’s (Reasonable Use Exemption), variances, and short-term rental impacts on the island’s aquifer. 


Hal adjourned the meeting at 8:00pm
