Opportunity To Join GIPAC Board Of Directors

The purpose of the Guemes Island Planning Advisory Committee (GIPAC) is to promote responsible growth management on Guemes Island.  The Committee does this by working to preserve the quality of life and fragile environment of Guemes, particularly the island’s freshwater aquifer, rural character, resource lands, shorelines, critical areas, and other environmentally sensitive areas. 

GIPAC was recognized by the Board of Skagit County Commissioners on February 10, 2003 — and reaffirmed on January 18, 2011 — as the community-based representative of Guemes residents and property owners on matters related to the Guemes Island Subarea Plan.
