2. If I want to develop land outside of the Town of Cathlamet where there is no zoning can I build anything I want?
No. All projects must be approved by the Building & Planning Department. Also, the Comprehensive Plan references Proposed Land Use on page 78.
3. How do I get access to a deed, survey, easement, my property boundaries or other legal documents that were recorded in Wahkiakum County?
Contact the Auditors office at 360-795-3219 or email email@example.com
If you cannot find the information you are looking for in the auditors office, contact a title company or a surveyor.
4. I am looking to purchase a parcel or develop land that I already purchased. How do I get more information about specific parcels?
Use the Wahkiakum County web map to search by parcel id, geographic id, address, or current property owner. Also, read the documentation on the Building and Planning page regarding development in Wahkiakum county.
5. I want to get a map of my property for general use not for legal purposes. Where can I access a map?
The Wahkiakum County Web map is searchable by property ID, Geographic ID, Address, or Property Owner. In the top right corner of the web app is a print button. Alternatively, our GIS Technician can assist you with getting a map.
6. The Wahkiakum County Parcel map shows different boundaries than what I own.
Contact the county GIS Technician, at 360-795-3067 or firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the parcel ID, the address, and the area that you think is mapped incorrectly. We will audit the parcel layer based on the recorded documents that are available in the Auditors office. Keep in mind that you cannot use the county parcel map for legal purposes. Contact a title company or surveyor if you are uncertain of what you own.
7. I bought a parcel but the Wahkiakum County GIS map or the assessor office page does not show the ownership change. How often is the Wahkiakum GIS parcel map updated?
Wahkiakum County updates parcel ownership monthly. Contact the GIS Technician or the assessor office directly if you purchased a parcel but do not see the change of ownership on the assessor page, or on the GIS map.
8. What is the data source for the Wahkiakum County parcel map?
The parcel layer is drawn based on surveys and deeds that are recorded in the Auditors office. If a parcel has a survey but the survey has not been recorded in the Auditors office then the information will not be updated on the parcel map. Only recorded changes are included in the parcel map.
9. How many feet is the right of way at the County Road adjacent to my parcel?
The right of way adjacent to any parcel will vary depending on the location. Contact the Building & Planning Department and provide them with the address or parcel ID and they will be able to look up this information and get back to you.
