2017 SMP Draft New Black Lines and Purple

THE NEW CLALLAM COUNTY  DCD SMP Update 273 Page Draft  is a very expensive, very complicated  environmental designation, a Color Book coded with black lines and  purple, and every other color of the rainbow to rule, regulate and restrict every  vested private shoreline property owner in Clallam County WA.

SO WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THAT?

DISCOVERY, NOV 9, 2017  I RECEIVED A WARNING “IF THE CITIZENS OF CLALLAM COUNTY ONLY KNEW THE EVIL OF THE BLACK LINE, THE DISCRIMINATION OF THE PURPLE COLOR”

Question: “Why use Color Book?”

Answer:  “Color Books have been in the news  a lot since Nov 8, 2016”

 Hello Clallam County Country Bumpkins et al. Who knew what on Jan 26, 2011?

And, what have we discovered …. Nov 10, 2017?

The Clallam County DCD SMP Update Draft is a 273 page color book, It  cost American taxpayers $1,329,915.00 dollars. A US Environmental  Protection  Assistance Grant  to Clallam County WA  for Project No  PO-00J08801-1-2- 3.

Total Project cost, one million three hundred twenty nine thousand nine hundred and fifteen dollars.

WHO’S ACCOUNTING FOR THE MONEY?

I’m requesting an answer from  Jim Jones, Jr.  the Clallam County Administrator..

What started as a $599,000.00 pass through grant from the EPA to Clallam County  for ESA Adolfson  facilitators/ consultants/ compliance experts, Margaret Clancy and Jim Kramer, we were told,  to regulate 3300 vested  private shoreline turned into $1,329,915.00 dollar project.

DISCOVERY  Jan 26, 2011 to Nov 10, 2017 continued….

WHO KNEW, A PERSON THAT WE HAVE NEVER SEE, IN OR AT, OR QUESTIONED AT ANY PUBLIC 2017 DCD SMP UPDATE DISCUSSIONS, IS CLALLAM COUNTY EMPLOYEE CATHY LEAR THE PROJECT MANAGER.

December 6, 2011 Cathy Lear comments on the SMP Update

HELLO COUNTRY BUMPKINS…

Doubtless, everyone with an advanced degree in forestry would understand these references.

This way of writing is distracting, however, for those who do not customarily speak in these terms. I think it should be made more “speaks for itself to anyone” wherever possible. A shoreline inventory should be a tool useful to anyone interested, but especially to land use planners and citizens with property they want to develop.

We cannot assume everyone speaks the language of academic society.

NOV 9, 2017   MORE DISCOVERY  on the 2017 DCD SMP Draft Update 273 PAGE COLOR BOOK . People send me stuff, people tell me stuff, I have a researched and documented history of the Clallam County SMP Update stuff.

NOV 9, 2017  A WARNING “IF THE CITIZENS OF CLALLAM COUNTY ONLY KNEW THE EVIL OF THE BLACK LINE, THE DISCRIMINATION OF THE PURPLE COLOR”

——————————————————–

I am very familiar with the color purple on maps used for the SMP Update. I did attended the 2012 SMP Update Forks Public Forum.

WHO KNEW ABOUT THE “NEW”  EVIL BLACK LINES ON THE DCD 2017 SMP UPDATE DRAFT MAPS COLOR BOOK?  NOT ONLY DID THEY COLOR  OUR PRIVATE SHORELINE PROPERTY PURPLE,

WHO KNEW?  AND, WHO KNOWS THAT THEY DREW “NEW” EVIL  BLACK LINES ON OUR PRIVATE SHORELINE PROPERTY?

NOV 9, 2017 3:30PM I COULD DOCUMENT ON MAP #41 IN THE COLOR BOOK,  THE “NEW” EVIL BLACK LINES ON THE 2017 DCD SMP UPDATE DRAFT MAPS, THE BLACK LINES “TOOK”  20 ACRES OF A GEORGE C. RAINS SR TRUST PROPERTY FROM  A 40 ACRE PARCEL ON THE SOL DUC RIVER.

I WAS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS, I IMMEDIATELY WENT TO THE CLALLAM COUNTY COURT HOUSE.

Nov 9, 2017 I met with DCD Director Mary Ellen Winborn

We spoke for about an hour…

RE: THE EVIL OF THE BLACK LINE AND THE DISCRIMINATION OF THE PURPLE COLOR.

The bottom line… pretty much went like this.

Mary Ellen said, “We have to leave this to the professionals”…..

WHY WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE YOU?

DISCOVERY CONTINUED….

RE-DISCOVERY MY SMP PUBLIC COMMENT APRIL 18, 2012

GIVE THEM AN INCH AND THEY’LL TAKE A MILE

Seller disclosure as required by Clallam County 2012 SMP Update and WA State law

But the best news of all is the assurance by the Planning Dept. that your private property will not have any loss of value due to Clallam County’s 2012 SMP Draft restrictions and regulations.

BUT? What has Clallam County got to lose?

RCW 90.58.290

Restrictions as affecting fair market value of property. The restrictions imposed by this chapter shall be considered by the county assessor in establishing the fair market value of the property.

[1971 ex.s. c 286 § 29.]

INDEED, ONE MUST CONSIDER  ALL OF THE  RESTRICTIVE SMP  “SHALLS” ON PRIVATE VESTED SHORELINE PROPERTY OWNERS, AND IN PARTICULAR… THE UNDEVELOPED PRIVATE INVESTMENT SHORELINE PROPERTIES, VIEW, ETC?

Merrill, Hannah From: pearl hewett … Subject: SMP GIVE THEM AN INCH AND THEY’LL TAKE A MILEhave any loss of value due to Clallam County’s 2012 SMP Draft …

I submit this as my SMP comment

Pearl Rains Hewett Trustee

George C. Rains Sr. Estate

Member SMP Advisory Committee

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Grandfathered is non-conforming.

The statistics introduced at the last SMP Advisory meeting, on how many private property owners, property and single family dwellings will become non-conforming by the SMP Draft marine 175′, 150′ plus 10′ setbacks, has not been posted on the SMP web site. (the number was staggering)

PER CATHY LEAR, they are waiting to compile the historic statistics to show the number of how many private property owners, property and single family dwellings were non-conforming on the old SMP marine setbacks. (hindsight is 20/20)

How have the DOE restrictions, regulations and definitions on/of non-conforming property changed since 1976?

I wrote the following as a tongue in cheek comment on the 2012 SMP Update.

After seeing the statistics on non-conforming private marine property at the last SMP meeting, it is not funny, it is frightening.

2013 OLYMPIC PENINSULA CLASSIFIED AD

FOR SALE VIEW   LOT ON THE BEAUTIFUL STRAITS OF JUAN DE FUCA

100FEET X400FEET

Seller disclosure as required by Clallam County 2012 SMP Update and WA State law

This is a 100% non-conforming lot

There is a 175 foot setback from the HWL

The is a 150 setback from the feeder bluff

There is a 65 foot wetland setback

There is a 50 foot buffer zone

There is a 10 foot setback from buildings

THE GOOD NEWS

The buyer is left with 25% of his private property purchase, a 100X100 foot piece of private property (with a 75% loss of his usable private land where the buyer is free to put his 1700 sq foot home, his drain field, his parking and his deck and his garden.

The buyer will be allowed a 20 foot view corridor (20’X300′) through the 300 feet of restricted use area of his private property. (leaving 80% of his view blocked)

The buyer will be allowed to limb up and remove 30% of the vegetation blocking his view every 10 years on the 100 X 300 foot restricted use area of his private property.

The buyer will be allowed a 6 foot wide foot path through the 300 foot restricted use area (in the view corridor) of his private property and home to the beach. (a full city block from beach)

Using a variance and a geological study you may be able to reduce the setbacks and buffer zones.

But the best news of all is the assurance by the Planning Dept. that your private property will not have any loss of value due to Clallam County’s 2012 SMP Draft restrictions and regulations.
