(ECY) <br /> <br />Subject:JEFFCO SMP comments to WADOE <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Attention: Jeffree Stewart, Regional Planner, WA D.O.E. <br />May 3, 2010 <br />Comments RE: Locally Approved Jefferson County Shoreline Master Program (SMP) <br /> <br /> <br />For the public record, I express my overall support for this SMP effort and product. <br /> <br />Because the DCD made direct mailings and provided many opportunities for citizen participation, the <br />resulting involvement led to a balanced approach of meeting both ecosystem and shoreline property <br />owner needs as well as those of all Washington residents who are stakeholders in our waters and <br />shorelines. <br /> <br />The use of clearly written regulations will lead to appropriate protections for both shoreline functions and <br />property values. Setting 150’ buffers based on BAS, yet providing terms for some modifications when <br />ecological functions can be retained seems justified. <br />The prohibition of commercial net pen farming and fostering of non-structural shoreline protection (i.e. <br />NOT armoring) are also important features I support. <br /> <br />I hope this SMP approach will be followed in Clallam County, where I live. <br /> <br />Judy Larson <br />1070 Palo Verde Loop <br />Sequim, WA 98382 <br />1 <br />
