Planned Parenthood Vote Delayed

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A vote on a proposed Planned Parenthood in Pasco is being delayed.

Arguments from both sides were presented and the planning commission originally voted 5 to 1 against the proposed planned parenthood, with two members not voting.

Plans were to build a new office off Court Street next door to Mark Twain Elementary. But after voting against it, commission members took back their vote when the city attorney recommended more research be done.

Both sides had to meet certain criteria to either deny or approve the permit. The attorney said the testimony to deny the permit wasn't supported based on special criteria. Council members then voted 4 to 2 to allow city staff to review the arguments and delay the vote another month.

Ray Rose was the only member of the planning commission who voted for planned parenthood out of the six that voted.

After the planning commission votes next month, their recommendation will then be given to the city council.
