 ————————————————————-
ESA ADOLFSON PAID CONSULTANT/COMPLIANCY EXPERT MARGARET CLANCY insinuated in her presentation that private property owners are too stupid/dumb/uninformed to know how to build on, or develop their own property….
—————————————–
And in doing so, she insinuated that the Clallam County Dept of Community Development (DCD), the Planning Commission, local government et al. is too stupid/dumb/uninformed to know how to permit building  or development in and on Clallam County property.
—————————————————-
And that it necessary for the SMP Update to impose the setbacks for the management, and control of Clallam County private property building and development for the owner’s, protection and safety.

Nov 9, 2017 I met with ELECTED CLALLAM COUNTY DCD Director Mary Ellen Winborn We spoke for about an hour…

The bottom line… pretty much went like this.

Mary Ellen said, “WE HAVE TO LEAVE THIS 2017 DCD 2017 SMP UPDATE TO THE PROFESSIONALS”…..

Subject: May 18, 2011 – SMP Presentation to Clallam County Planning Commission
 
To whom it may concern: Dec 9, 2017
I did attend the  Wednesday:  May 18, 2011 – SMP Presentation to Clallam County Planning Commission (CCPC), Clallam County Courthouse Room 160, Port Angeles, 6:30 p.m. http://www.Clallam.net/RealEstate/html/planning_commission.htm

Shoreline Inventory and Characterization
Steve Grey attended, Margaret Clancy gave another slide show and presented “HER” side of the SMP update.
Including her selective hearing and understanding of the comments of the public, made at public SMP meetings.
——————–
Steve did introduce me as a member of our Advisory Committee.
Steve said he would put Margaret’s slide presentation  to the CCPC on line for us.
The 17.1% or less of Clallam County that is regulated and controlled by the SMP update has been divided into 18 areas/drift cells.
——————————-
Margaret’s ESA Adolfson  SMP update priories are,
1. Physical (manage, regulate and control)
2. Ecological (manage, regulate and control)
3. Land use.(manage, regulate and control)
—————————-
In Margaret’s own words Clallam County Marine shorelines are,
1. Very little shoreline modification
2. Very healthy vegetation (but the update needs more for erosion, landslides and hazard areas)
3. More healthy then Puget Sound.
———————————–
So? what do we do with for restoration on “NO NET LOSS” when we don’t have any?
———————————————
Margaret  did her, the cliff slides, the wind  blow, the sand is deposited.
The SMP must have Kelp bed protection 200 feet out into the straits.
————————————————
She did her, for private property owner’s, their own safety and protection, the SMP needs management, setbacks and control of our bluffs, rivers and flood plains. And the scary story about FEMA, NO flood insurance and protecting the fish?
——————————————
Then there were bulk heads, (rip rap was not mentioned), Per Margaret, the SMP update needs the setbacks for  management, and control of private property for the owner’s, protection and safety.
—————————————–
The new member Bonnie asked, “Doesn’t the WAC already protect single family dwellings?  (Actually it is an RCW). Yes, Margaret did say there was some protection.
————————————————
I wish I could quote the woman that spoke at the 4C meeting. We are not teenagers, etc. we managed to buy the property and pay the taxes, etc. etc.
——————————————————–
Margaret insinuated in her presentation (the usual) that private property owners are too stupid/dumb/uninformed to know how to build on, or develop their own property and that it necessary for the SMP update to impose the setbacks for the management, and control of private property for the owner’s, protection and safety.
——————————————-
A total hands off of any forest management in the SMP.
Green Crow and Harry Bell were mentioned regarding new planning commission members (I believe it was politically motivated), A members concern about changing forest land designation and how unplanned development could affect the Planning Commission..
———————————————-
Margaret used the words “RISK OF FUTURE DEVELOPMENT”
Lake Sutherland, per Margaret, there has been very little discussion on the Lake Sutherland so far (no mention of the Jan 26, 2011 focus group meeting), a small group meeting (at the Senior Center)
Her statistics on Lake Sutherland.
1. 471 parcels
2. 380 developed
3. 203 docks
———————————————–
 
No mention of the fear of the people at the lake. Nothing about Non-Conforming, white State boats patrolling, pictures taken of homes, docks and property, airplanes,  trespass or selective enforcement.
———————————————
 
Morse Creek flood plain and migration line of the creek were discussed.  Repeated more then once, For private property owner’s, their own safety and protection, the SMP needs management, setbacks and control of our creeks, rivers and flood plains. And the scary story about FEMA, NO flood insurance and protecting the fish?
————————————————–
An inappropriate remark about “Spees” was made by one of the members.
——————————————————————-
 
Some confusing/misleading pie, bar charts and statistics were used. Like the % of Marine land parcels for development, dividable and not, west end and east, kelp beds.(out in the water) etc.
 
Margaret’s closing  “THE HEALTH OF”
1. Ecgology
2. Fish
3. Water
4. Birds
5. Land
6. Kelp
“NOT MENTIONED
1. The Economy
2. Taking of Value of Private Property
3. Consequences of a 200 foot setbacks = non-conforming
5. The Actual Public and Advisory comments
4. Fear of Government and SMP
Margaret implied that many people agreed with the  ESA Adolfson’s agenda. She attempted to show how to use the ESA Portal maps.
Steve said they have received very few public comments.
PLEASE submit your public comments NOW.
