<br />Michelle McConnell <br />From:Tom Seavoy [] <br />Sent:Tuesday, May 11, 2010 4:10 PM <br />To:Stewart, Jeff R. (ECY) <br />Subject:Addendum to previous Email <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Forgot to include my address. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Dear Mr. Stewart: <br /> <br />I am writing this to inform you of my opposition to the current Shoreline Master Plan update. <br />For brevity I will restrict my comments primarily to the 150 foot setback requirement <br /> <br />The Planning Commission after many meetings and deliberations released a proposed draft <br />update which provided for a 50 foot setback. It then went to the Jefferson County Department <br />of Community Development (DCD) where a new draft was released with a 150 foot setback <br />requirement. At the public hearing of the new draft, about two thirds of those speaking <br />recommended a return to the 50 foot requirement. These pleas fell on deaf ears at the DCD, <br />resulting in a draft being sent to the County Commissioners still with the 150 foot setback, <br />which they approved. <br />Public meetings and hearings did nothing to move anyone in a position of power. <br /> <br />This requirement is not supported by any science or data that would be able to quantify any <br />problem caused by near shore building or any benefit from not allowing it. <br /> <br />I strongly urge you to not approve the plan as submitted by Jefferson County. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br /> <br />Thomas J. Seavoy <br />634 Schwartz Rd <br />Nordland, WA 98358 <br /> <br />1 <br />
