Free public Army Corps permitting session offered in Montesano

The Seattle District Regulatory Branch is holding free public information sessions in Southwest Washington, including one in Montesano on Monday.

The Army Corps of Engineers says these sessions are intended to foster efficient and effective working relationships with the public, applicants, consultants, local municipalities, and agencies.

Each event will provide a thorough understanding and refresher of the Corps Regulatory Program processes and application requirements.  

A Corps project manager will be available for follow-up questions and discussion as time allows.  

Topics will include Permitting Authorities and Jurisdiction, Permits and Authorizations, Application Submittal and Completeness, Review Process, Project Drawings, and Common Application Mistakes.  

The Corps says “Our intent is to help folks to expedite their permitting process, put faces with names, and answer questions and hear concerns.”

The meeting in Montesano on Monday February 25 is set for 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Grays Harbor County Commissioners Office.

Due to limited space, registration is required. Call 206-764-3750 for more information.
