YOU’RE COMMITTEE WAS JUST A SOUNDING BOARD FOR THE DCD AND CONSULTANT

MY COMMITTEE WHAT COMMITTEE?

OH YES, NOW I REMEMBER THE SO CALLED SMP ADVISORY COMMITTEE

——————————————————————————–

WHAT  I KNOW AND  CAN DOCUMENT ABOUT THE SO CALLED SMP ADVISORY COMMITTEE

With 29 members INCLUDE SOME (5) VESTED PRIVATE CLALLAM COUNTY CITIZENS, but most (24) members of the committee represent environmental and other advocacy groups or are PAID staff of Clallam County, the Department of Ecology (DOE), Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) and Puget Sound Partnership. The Tribes, The Serra club, and NGO special interest groups.

SOME (5) VESTED PRIVATE CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE PROPERTY OWNERS, CITIZENS WERE DEDICATED,  UNPAID, CIVIC MINDED VOLUNTEERS

In 2011 As An Unpaid Volunteer I was sucked in to be part of a civic minded event called  the Citizens SMP Advisory Committee.

Four Months later, In 2011 I was insulted  and absolutely furious when the committee was demoted to JUST  an important work group (by Steve Gray)

Nov 18, 2014 THE 2012 SMP DRAFT PREPARED BY THE SO CALLED  CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAD BEEN COMPLETELY REWRITTEN, REVISED, ALTERED, EDITED, EXPANDED, REWORDED, AND RE-DRAFTED AND RENAMED

By, Steve Gray, Deputy Director/Planning Manager the  Clallam County Shoreline Management Update, by his own admission to me. with no help from ESA facilitator, Margaret Clancy, and renamed THE NEW November 2014 draft Clallam County Shoreline Master Program Update

 Dec. 12, 2017  adding insult to injury, The SMP Committee was called just a sounding board and as one of the unpaid volunteers, that attended every meeting, and many SMP public forums, And made many public comment,  I was publicly humiliated by being called JUST  PART OF A SOUNDING BOARD at the BOCC Clallam County 2017 SMP Update Public Forum.

EXCLUDING THE PAID MEMBERS OF THE SMP COMMITTEE,   HOW MUCH DID THE 2017 CLALLAM COUNTY SMP UPDATE BENEFIT FROM FIVE (5) DEDICATED CIVIC MINDED, UNPAID VOLUNTEERS?

——————————————————————————————————–

The SMP Advisory Committee was under the direction of,  E.S.A. Adfolson Consultants, Margaret Clancy  and Jim Kramer. How could anyone forget to mention the Facilitators?

The first Meeting of the Clallam County SMP Advisory Committee was

Monday, April 11, 2011:

The Official NOTE taker was Hannah Merrill DCD Natural Resources Planner
Clallam County Dept. of Community Development. Comments from the committee were not recorded, not published and were arbitrarily edited for content.

SMP Cumulative Impact on People This is my Clallam County SMP Public comment and objection comment code CIA – Cumulative Impacts Report directed to Deputy Director Steve Gray and Planning Commission on the Nov.

—————————————————————————————-

I have been researching documenting and commenting on the Clallam County Shoreline Management Plan Update since Jan.26, 2011.

I  have 156 SMP Public Comments posted on the SMP website on the CUMULATIVE IMPACT OF THE SMP UPDATE ON THE 3300 VESTED PRIVATE SHORELINE PROPERTY OWNERS IN CLALLAM COUNTY WA.

But? Then?  WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT THE SMP UPDATE WEBSITE?

The vast majority of my “CUMULATIVE IMPACT” SMP Public Comments on “We The People” have been posted  and coded as “GENERAL COMMENTS?”.

How could a thing like that happen?

The  Nov. 2014 Clallam County SMP Updated Draft?

By his own admission to me, with no help from ESA facilitator, Margaret Clancy, Steve Gray, Deputy Director/Planning Manager has completely rewritten, revised, altered, edited, expanded, reworded, and RE-DRAFTED the the Clallam County Shoreline Management Update.

Steve Gray has presented two meetings of his Updated SMP RE-DRAFTED SMP  to The Clallam County Planning Commission, ESA facilitator, Margaret Clancy, is assisting him.

———————————————————————————————————–

I strenuously object to the hastily rewritten RE-DRAFTED SMP Update presentations of maps and language. Using  the ESA consultants and ECOLOGY’S SUSTAINABILITY NO NET LOSS jargon,

Sometimes including a brief stop to mention the  Advisory Committee

The  SMP GOBBLEDYGOOK being presented, using more words than necessary, especially to avoid expressing it directly,  to an ill-prepared Planning Commission, goes far beyond the understanding of a reasonable person. (why Lake Sutherland has a 35 foot setback)

THE OVERLAPPING MAPS? UNUSUALLY  hard to understand THE SHALL AND MUST PROTECT  of , 200 foot setback, the critical areas set- backs, plus the exceptional feeder bluffs, plus the flood plain, plus the rivers meander line, PLUS THE ASSOCIATED WETLANDS, plus the protected wetland habitat,  and the mention of SEASONAL STREAMS…

UNUSUALLY, HARD TO UNDERSTAND HARD TO SWALLOW.

Obama Administration Is Writing Huge “Rule Change” to Take Private Land

—————————————————————————————–

The new rules and wording added to our Nov. 2014   Shoreline Management Update by Steve Gray indicate that it is a done deal… plus the associated wetlands, plus seasonal streams.

————————————————————————

The changed suggested by the Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency is being protested by the Pacific Legal Foundation, a group which has challenged water-related regulation before the Supreme Court — and won.

“On its face, the proposed rule covers virtually every water in the nation,” PLF told the government in public comments, according to WND.

———————————————————————————-

The understanding of a reasonable man? The intent of a party can be determined by examining the understanding of a reasonable person, after consideration is given to all relevant circumstances of the case including the negotiations, any practices the parties have established between themselves, usages and any subsequent conduct of the parties.

—————————————————————————————

Why call it GOBBLEDYGOOK? in an SMP Update in ESA and ECOLOGY language characterized by circumlocution and the use of more words than necessary to express something, especially to avoid saying it directly.

 And saying the word water, and more water, Indicates water, the movement of water, standing still water, the high water mark, failed to mention the difference between an SMP shoreline and the SMP shorelines of Statewide significance, past the  taking of  private property value, somebody, vested private property owners… 

Sometimes including a brief stop to mention the  mitigation process, so a vested Clallam County private property owner can use and develop his own private property.

Using  the ESA consultants and ECOLOGY’S SUSTAINABILITY NO NET LOSS jargon

Sometimes including a brief stop to mention the  Advisory Committee

And THIS IS  really, really hard to swallow after spending over two years as a vested private shoreline property owner on the …….

Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Advisory Committee

 MEMBER FROM  first meeting April 11, 2011 to last July 10, 2012

But? Then?  WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT THE SMP UPDATE?
