Reserves Coordinating Committee (RCC)

Washington County urban and rural reserves designation recommendations were informed by the Washington County Reserves Coordinating Committee (RCC). The committee was a joint effort of county and cities officials, agricultural interests and special service districts and was typical of large planning efforts.

The RCC formed in February, 2008 and held its last regularly scheduled meeting in September, 2009. RCC urban and rural designation recommendations were forwarded to the Core Four and the regional Reserves Steering Committee (RSC) for consideration. The RCC also addressed additional growth management issues including; Performance-based Growth Management and Urbanization, and provision of urban services.

Bylaws for the RCC were presented at the April 7 meeting and were adopted with amendments.  View RCC Bylaws.
