                            The layer shows the current City Limits, Urban Growth Area (UGA) and Joint Planning Area (JPA) classifications for all of Island County, pursuit to ICC 17.03.  This layer was created pre-2011.

No double-checking or quality-control process has been done on this layer since 2011 between the Official Zoning Atlases kept in the Planning Department and this layer.  As of 5/14/2015, annexations done after 2011 may not be consistently reflected in this layer.  It is expected that the accuracy rate between the UGA/JPA layer and Zoning Atlases is greater than 95%.

It is a goal of Planning and Community Development to do a quality and consistency cross-check of this Layer and the Zoning Atlases during the GIS centralization project.
