Emergency Rule Adopted: Rescinding 2021 Wildland-Urban Interface Code

During the 2024 Legislative Session ESB 6120 was passed and signed by the governor.  The effect of this legislation prevents the SBCC from adopting a Wild-land Urban Interface Code until new mapping is completed by the Department of Natural Resources. Local jurisdictions are still allowed to adopt the Model Wildland-Urban Interface Code 

On March 15, the Council filed an emergency rule for the 2021 International Wildland-Urban Interface Code. The Emergency rule Removes all amendment language from WAC 51-55 until new mapping and amendments can be developed. The emergency rule is now in effect. See the following link to view the emergency filing.
