Skagit Alternative Futures Project

Evaluating major alternatives that the people of Skagit County can take to address the challenges of climate change and population growth over the next 50 years.

The four-year project, funded by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is evaluating major alternatives that the people of Skagit County (home to the largest and most ecologically important river in the Puget Sound basin) can take to address the challenges of climate change and the likelihood of doubling human population over the next fifty years. The project will be working with a stakeholders group to develop a "Preferred Future" that can, to the greatest extent possible, conserve and restore ecosystem functions while maintaining a viable local farm economy and meeting other growth management goals.
