(ECY) <br />Subject:Comments on Jeffeson County SMP <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Mr. Stewart, <br /> <br />I had the pleasure of attending a Jefferson County SMP public comments session many months ago that was <br />hosted in your courthouse, and I saw citizens of different views standing up and speaking. It was inspiring to <br />see democracy at work. <br /> <br />As one of your neighbors, and as one who enjoys the nature of both the Hood Canal and the Port Townsend <br />areas, I strongly support the provisions that you put into your SMP to conserve the natural aspects of <br />shorelines: specifically the 150 buffers, the prohibition of mining activities on the shore. and your encouraging <br />natural armoring rather than concrete bulkheads. Concrete is an insidious thing and there is an endless supply <br />of it. Natural resources, on the other hand, are limited and should be protected if Jefferson County is to retain <br />its natural wooded and shoreline character. <br /> <br />Your SMP efforts to conserve your shorelines is admirable, and hopefully will preserve Jefferson County's <br />natural beauty. <br /> <br />Very respectfully, <br />Michael Maddox <br />Pouslbo <br /> <br />1 <br />
