Randall B. Printz
For over 20 years, Randall Printz has represented many of the largest commercial, residential and industrial developers in Southwest Washington on a variety of land use and zoning matters. His work has included development and implementation of comprehensive project permitting strategies— bringing together and coordinating disciplines such as civil engineering, transportation engineering, wetlands biology, wildlife and habitat biology, geotechnical engineering, archeology and landscape architecture—to successfully achieve results within political and regulatory environments.
These strategies involve understanding and interpreting the many regulatory hurdles imposed by local, state and federal regulations. Randy routinely negotiates these issues with the staffs of cities and counties, State agencies such as the Department of Ecology, the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Transportation, and Federal agencies such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Randy has negotiated many Development Agreements between land use clients and local jurisdictions. Often these involve extension of project vesting, transportation mitigation and timing of that mitigation, impact fee and SDC credits and a host of other issues. He is also substantially involved in various legislative processes assisting in the creation and/or adoption of Comprehensive Plans and a variety of land use regulations in many jurisdictions. Over his career, Randy has appeared in hundreds of hearings before city councils, county commissioners, planning commissions, hearing examiners, the Growth Management Hearings Board, Superior Court, Washington Court of Appeals and the Washington State Supreme Court.
Randy has been invited to sit on a variety of community task forces and committees in many jurisdictions whose purpose is usually to address an urban planning issue. Representative of these endeavors are Clark County's technical advisory committee to adopt the County's Comprehensive Plan, the City of Vancouver's committee to adopt the City's first Transportation Concurrency ordinance, a technical advisory committee to adopt revised storm water regulations for the City of Camas, a technical committee to amend the City of Ridgefield's zoning and development codes, the City of Camas' committee to adopt its wetlands regulations, the City of Camas' committee to adopt its tree preservation ordinance, Clark County's oversight committee for its code re-write, and the City of Vancouver's committee to rewrite sections of its Site Plan Review code.
