20.40.010 Purpose.

The timber management district is intended to provide for the management and harvest of timber, extraction of minerals, use and enjoyment of natural resources and recreation, while allowing for the development of compatible, remote, low density cabin sites. Watersheds and critical wildlife habitats in this district will be protected to the greatest extent possible. Development in this district must be consistent with the remote, rural atmosphere of the area. Public services, utilities and facilities other than garbage collection will be minimal. Activities and development normally associated with resource management, harvest or extraction are allowed where they do not degrade or destroy other resources such as public watersheds or critical wildlife habitat. Residential development is limited to low impact, large parcel cabin sites that will minimize public service and access costs, resource management impacts and conflicts associated with higher density residential development.
