You can participate in shaping the next 20 years of Island County growth and development!

Island County Planning and Community Development is beginning the process of reviewing and updating the Island County Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan expresses the vision and goals of Island County, and serves as the policy document which will shape growth and development over the next 20 years. 

NEW! If you are an Island County resident or property owner, please visit this website at and take the survey at:

The survey is one way Island County is listening to the community, so that your vision and goals may be included in the discussion and priorities of the Comp Plan and implementing code.

 Planning and Community Development welcomes and encourages public participation throughout this process.  This is a great opportunity to help shape the future of Island County!

Sustainable Whidbey Coalition

The Sustainable Whidbey Coalition is a network of leaders directly involved in fostering sustainability on Whidbey Island. The Coalition was formed in the fall of 2007 as a significant collaborative response to global climate change and local implications. Since then, SWC has brought tax-supported entities and private organizations together monthly to:

  • Demonstrate a long-term commitment to Island sustainability.
  • Act as a HUB of information and resources related to collaboration about sustainability on Whidbey Island.
  • Provide professional education about best practices in sustainability.
  • Serve as a starting place and think tank for collaborative efforts; project ideas are surfaced at Coalition meetings with project teams launched as needed.
  • Provide support and technical assistance for project design and fund development.
  • Provide a link to the Island County Council of Governments on sustainability issues and projects
