IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME
Based on this 1971 premise

1971 Rod Mack:

ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVE is one of many perspectives,

MY OBSERVATION IS THAT IN AREAS WHERE ECONOMICS IS A PRIME
CONSIDERATION—

IN THE SMALLER, LESS AFFLUENT
COMMUNITIES—

THERE IS A HIGHER PRIORITY FOR JOBS AND TAX
BASE THAN THERE IS PRIORITY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS

Rod Mack  My charge, when I joined ECOLOGY IN 1971, was developing the regulations related to the permit system of the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) as well as the guidelines.

 Those GUIDELINES were basically instructions FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS’ preparation of their Master Programs as well as standards or criteria for evaluating developments that took place on the shorelines, AGAIN, BY LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVE is one of many perspectives,
MY OBSERVATIONS FROM JAN 26, 2011 TO OCT 22, 2017  IS THAT IN AREAS WHERE ECONOMICS IS A PRIME CONSIDERATION—IN THE SMALLER, LESS AFFLUENT
COMMUNITIES—THERE IS A HIGHER PRIORITY FOR JOBS AND TAX
BASE THAN THERE IS PRIORITY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS.

President Trump was elected Nov 8, 2016 because

FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS, THE VOTERS, IN AREAS WHERE ECONOMICS WAS A PRIME CONSIDERATION, THERE WAS A HIGHER PRIORITY FOR JOBS AND TAX BASE  FOR HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS CITIZENS IN THE USA,THAN THERE WAS A PRIORITY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS.

INDEED, TRUMP’S PRIORITY ONE WAS ROLLING BACK THE FEDERAL JOB KILLING REGULATIONS, AND RETURNING POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE.

WHAT HAPPENED TO US BETWEEN 1971 AND OCT 22, 2017 ON THE CLALLAM COUNTY 2017 SMP UPDATE?

This is my public comment on the

Clallam County SMP Update

Pearl Rains Hewett

1971 Rod Mack: ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVE is one of many perspectives,
my observation is that in areas where ECONOMICS is a prime
consideration—in the smaller, less affluent
communities—there is a higher priority for jobs and tax
base than there is priority for environmental concerns

Those GUIDELINES were basically instructions FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS’ preparation of their Master Programs as well as standards or criteria for evaluating developments that took place on the shorelines, AGAIN, BY LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME?
Both by premise and legislative intent

IN 1971….

In 1972 the SHORELINE MANAGEMENT ACT PASSED

The FEDERAL road to SMP and WATER HELL was PAVED with good intentions?

AND HOW MUCH FEDERAL MONEY?

When the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act came along, it said, if a state wants to do a program, here’s some MONEY to do it; then, once it’s done, here’s some MORE MONEY to manage it.

There’s a definite tie. The Federal Coastal Zone Management Act came about in ’72 at virtually the same time our Shoreline Management Act was finally approved.

We were watching it very closely, because the federal law provides SUBSTANTIAL FUNDING to states that develop management programs. Here, we had the Shoreline Management Act.

MORE FEDERAL MONEY AND MORE FEDERAL MONEY AND MORE FEDERAL  MONEY

BAIT AND SWITCHED TO FEDERAL CONTROL

When? and how did we lose our right to local government?
When? and how were the appointed given state RULE by WAC?
When? and how were federally appointed agencies given ultimate power?

WHEN INDEED..
THE EXPLOSION OF FEDERAL LEGISLATION ENACTED
BETWEEN 1970 AND 1980 TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT

UPDATE 2013 STATE? SHORELINE MANAGEMENT ACT?
HAS BECOME FEDERALLY ENACTED
SHORELINE MANAGEMENT BY APPOINTED FEDERAL AGENCIES.
———————————————————–
Shoreline Act 40, 263 From 1971-2005

1971 The ENVIRONMENTALISTS proposed the state’s jurisdiction would include 500 feet back from the water’s edge, providing for a strip of land, 500 feet wide, that would be the jurisdiction of their bill.

1971 They, the ENVIRONMENTALISTS also placed primary, almost exclusive, planning and REGULATORY AUTHORITY WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY, instead of LOCAL GOVERNMENT
Resulting in a very STRONG ROLE by the STATE and a much lesser role by LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

That initiative got enough signatures to go on to the ballot at the next general election. Seeing that, THE LEGISLATURE THEN DECIDED, as is allowed and provided for under the state’s constitution, to enact their version to put on the ballot, which was the 1972 SHORELINE MANAGEMENT ACT, which ultimately passed. The basic difference between the initiative and the act was that the act named a strip 200 feet from the water’s edge as the area of jurisdiction, and then set up the joint state/local approach.
——————————————-
2013 WA STATE SHORELINE MANAGEMENT ACT? AND WATER?

A much lesser role of STATE AND LOCAL government?

FEDERAL APPOINTED AGENCIES EDICTS MANDATING TO THE WA STATE DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY

WA STATE DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY’S WAC’S, EDITICS, RULING, REGULATING AND ENFORCING OF LOCAL COUNTY AND CITY GOVERNMENT

ENACTED BY CONGRESS CONTROLLED AND MANDATED BY FEDERAL APPOINTED AGENCIES AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS placed exclusive, planning and regulatory authority with federal appointed government agencies EPA ETC….

RESULTING IN A VERY STRONG ROLE BY THE ACTS OF CONGRESS and AMENDMENTS TO THOSE ACTS and DELIGATING ALL POWER TO APPOINTED FEDERAL AGENCIES AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS.

IF WILD OLYMPICS WAS FEDERALLY ENACTED jurisdiction would include 500 feet (or more) back from the water’s edge, providing for a strip of land, 500 feet (or more) wide, that would be the FEDERAL jurisdiction of that ACT.

Chapter Seven – Saving the Shorelines 2005
The Plan to Protect the Coastlines
An interview with Rodney Mack
February 2, 2005
Position held at time of interview:
Retired, formerly Program Manager for the Shorelands and
Environmental Assistance Program,
Washington State Department of Ecology, 1983-1994

From an environmental standpoint, given the two versions of the shorelines legislation, the environmentalist version talked about a jurisdictional area. In other words, what areas, what pieces of geography, the act applied to.

Our Shoreline Management Act was probably, with maybe the exception of California, the strongest law of its kind in the country at the time. This was right at the beginning of the ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT, and what we were doing was groundbreaking. It wasn’t a case where we could pick up the phone and call some other state and say, hey, what did you guys
do in dealing with this? Other states were calling us.

When the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act came along, it said, if a state wants to do a program, here’s some MONEY to do it; then, once it’s done, here’s some more MONEY to manage it.

There’s a definite tie. The Federal Coastal Zone Management Act came about in ’72 at virtually the same time our Shoreline Management Act was finally approved.

We were watching it very closely, because the federal law provides SUBSTANTIAL FUNDING to states that develop management programs. Here, we had the Shoreline Management Act.
