Janet Wright, Senior Planner, has worked for Island County since 2014, and has reviewed and approved development proposals for both shoreline and upland areas.
A large part of Janet's duties focus on public education. She strives to explain to the public how Island County regulations try to balance development activity and protection of the natural environment, which is an ongoing challenge.
Janet enjoys local and international travel and served as a volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps in Guatemala from 2010-2013. Her experience living in a developing country made her much more appreciative of the environmental laws in this country. A graduate with a master’s degree from the School of Planning and the Built Environment at the University of Washington, Janet is grateful to live and work in the beautiful Puget Sound region.
