The Snohomish County Council has adopted ordinance 18-106 related to ground disturbing activities that eliminates the problematic two-foot rule. Included in the measure is an opt-in provision that allows existing applicants to take advantage of the new code. The rule had led to serious safety and adverse possession concerns for property owners.
