(ECY) <br />Subject: Jefferson County SMP <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Please accept my comments in support of the updated SMP for Jefferson County. <br /> <br />Specific elements of the updated SMP that I support include: <br />1) 150 foot buffers, which were supported by significant testimony at all meetings and <br />hearings, and are supported in the current science as a compromise of buffer widths necessary <br />to protect shoreline functions. <br />2) Flexible buffer modification where modifications are appropriate (i.e., where there is no <br />net loss to shoreline functions) <br />3) Clear language and policies that make it easier for citizens to understand the SMP <br />4) Clear regulations that provide land use consistency and improve property values <br />5) No allowance for commercial net pen farming <br />6) Minimizes the need for shoreline armoring by encouraging non-structural remedies <br /> <br />Please finalize and adopt the locally approved and updated Jefferson County SMP as it is <br />presented to you. <br /> <br /> <br />Debaran Kelso <br />451 E.Middlepoint Rd <br />Port Townsend, WA 98368 <br />1 <br />
