(ECY) <br />Subject:Shoreline Master Program Amendment <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />The 150 foot setback is too much. Half that (75 feet) would be sufficient to protect the <br />shoreline, yet give property owners use of their property. <br />150 foot setback will encourage disregard and ignoring the law, as property owners will do <br />more without permits because of the onerous setbacks. <br /> <br />150 foot setback is NOT based on science. You have discussed the setbacks in 25 foot <br />increments - 25', 75', and 150'. If your decision was based on science, the setbacks would <br />be in numbers very much different than the even <br />25 <br />foot increments. They would be in odd numbers with fractions. <br /> <br />The 150 foot setback is too much. Set it at 75', or provide science to set an EXACT number <br />of feet and inches, not just some random number rounded off to the nearest 25 feet. <br /> <br />Thank you <br />Joel and Rose-Ellen Leonard <br />1 <br />
