(ECY) <br />Subject:Jefferson County Proposed SMP Amendment Res.No. 77-09 <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Dear Mr. Stewart, <br />I represent and manage property for several individuals and entities in Jefferson County. We have a long <br />history of protecting the environment and water quality. We are opposed to the Critical Areas requiring 150 <br />foot setbacks and 10 foot buffers. Those distances appear arbitrarily established and subjectively determined <br />and are over designating huge areas which may subject the document to legal challenge. The Planning <br />Commission suggested 50 foot maximum setbacks. At 50 foot, a regulatory taking is less likely, would be <br />supported by the Planning Comm. and if supported by science the setback could/should be less than 50 foot. I <br />am concerned that both an Environmental Impact Statement and an Economic Impact Analysis have not been <br />completed. How will these huge setbacks impact not only the properties I manage but those of the county and <br />the region? We will mail a more detailed letter to you by USPS. Thank you.
