Hearing Examiner

Walla Walla County has authorized the Hearing Examiner to conduct hearings on land use permit applications and appeals of certain administrative decisions.  The Hearing Examiner system assures fairness and due process protection for all persons involved in the land use hearing process. It is the Hearing Examiner's responsibility to render land use decisions in an efficient manner. Hearings held before the Hearing Examiner are quasi-judicial proceedings.  More information regarding the Hearing Examiner system is provided below.
The Walla Walla County Hearing Examiner typically holds hearings on the second Monday of the month in the First Floor Conference Room of the Walla Walla County Public Services Building at 310 W. Poplar Street, Walla Walla, WA. Typically the hearings start at 10:00 AM.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hearing Examiner meetings are being held virtually via the Cisco Webex platform.  Department staff can arrange for participation in person upon request. Link and instructions on how to participate will be included in agendas.  See below.
