Carlsborg church and county sparring again over land use
6/16/05 - Port Angeles, WA - A Carlsborg area church finds itself in another land-use showdown with Clallam County, this time over a zoning change that church members say would interfere with their ministry.
More than 75-members of the Kingsway Foursquare Church packed the hearing room at the courthouse Wednesday night to tell the Clallam County Planning Commission that a new zone aimed at protecting an adjacent airport would keep their congregation from growing.
The airport overlay district is being developed in response to new state law which calls on counties to eliminate land uses that could cause safety hazards and conflicts with airports. Zones are being proposed for all of the county's public-use airports, including Fairchild Airport, Sequim Valley, Forks Municipal, Sekiu and the Quillayute Airfield. It would not effect the many private airstrips scattered throughout the county.
