  • SMP Update Thank you for your comments

    Dec 10, 2017, Many SMP Update public comments of concern have been lost in the arbitrary DCD cut off dates shuffle.

    To insure that these public concerns shall be considered  by the Clallam County BOCC

    I am resubmitting  29 questions and comments for documentation of PUBLIC CONCERN on the Clallam County SMP update from just one Public Forum July 14, 2011

    Unfortunately, many of these public concerns are still valid on  Dec 10, 2017

    SPECIFIC CONCERN  July 14, 2011 and Dec 10, 2017

    1. Competency and reliability of ESA reports on, inventories, flood plains, critical areas, buffers and setbacks?
    2. Will owners of the property be required, at their own expense, to prove the ESA data is inaccurate? when ESA has a disclaimer on the maps and “May be up to 100 feet off”?

    Actual SMP map disclaimer ESA states:

    Map data shown here are property of the listed sources, inaccuracies may exist, and ESA implies no warranties or guarantees regarding any aspect of data depiction.

    Answer, Yes, property owner will have to disprove inaccurate data at their own expense.

    And…. 12. An additional question on property will be required, at their own expense? to prove the ESA Map data is inaccurate?

    —————————————–

    IF YOU ARE  CONCERNED ABOUT THE SMP UPDATE  THERE IS STILL TIME TO SEND YOUR COMMENTS TO THE BOCC smp@co.clallam.wa.us

    Back in the day, we received email notification…

    AND THEY SAID….

    As a  general public Comment

    Trustee George C. Rains Sr. Estate

    Invited SMP Citizens Advisory Committee Member

    Thursday:  July 14, 2011 – SMP Public Forum, John Wayne Marina, 2577 West Sequim Bay Road, Sequim, 1:00-3:30 p.m.

    With about 35 people in attendance The following questions were asked of Department of Community Development Steve Grey, Consultant Jim Kramer and ESA Nathan.

    1. The purpose for the Shoreline inventory and characteristic report is?
    2. The purpose for the SMP update is?
    3. Mandate deadline for SMP update ?
    4. What is the 200 foot set back?

    Answer, the 200 foot set back is WA State law, development can occur within the 200 foot set back, with special permitting.

    1. City, County SMP compliancy who’s jurisdiction?
    2. Request for slides of maps?
    3. Where to send written comments?
    4. Competency and reliability of ESA reports on, inventories, flood plains, critical areas, buffers and setbacks?
    5. Will owners of the property be required, at their own expense, to prove the ESA data is inaccurate? when ESA has a disclaimer on the maps and “May be up to 100 feet off”?

    Actual SMP map disclaimer ESA states:

    Map data shown here are property of the listed sources, inaccuracies may exist, and ESA implies no warranties or guarantees regarding any aspect of data depiction.

    Answer, Yes, property owner will have to disprove inaccurate data at their own expense.

    1. What is the concept of law, regarding “NO NET LOSS?”
    2. Is the shoreline inventory and characteristic report to determine the base line for loss and consequences with regard to “NO NET LOSS?
    3. An additional question on property will be required, at their own expense? to prove the ESA Map data is inaccurate?
    4. Comment, SPM, good information, good access and good to have public involvement at meetings.
    5. Many web sites, which one do I use?
    6. Development, with regard to loss of wildlife habitat?
    7. Do you use any of the things learned by Jefferson County SMP guidelines? Reports related to It created levels of public anxiety?
    8. Will Clallam County just rubber stamp other SMP’s information and just do it any way?
    9. Is the SMP udate just cut and dried?
    10. Will we have input, considering that the impaired water quality on the lower Dungeness has been proven to be 75% bird poop and 25% people related?

    Answer, we can’t control the birds and can just focus on what can be controlled.

    As, Pearl Rains Hewett  I had a problem being recognized by Steve Grey and Jim Kramer to be allowed to speak.

    It was not mentioned that I was a member of the Invited SMP update committee.

    I made (2) comments and asked (1) question during the 2 1/2 hour meeting.

    My comment, Per HB 1478 after receiving a grant for the SMP, a county has 2 years to complete their update.

    My comment, shrinking open space habitat has forced animals to use freshwater reaches for travel, causing further non- people related impairment of water quality.

    1. My question, How is permitting usage done on the 200′ set back required by WA State law? By the County? Shoreline exemption Permit? Or running the full gauntlet with the DOE?

    21.Questioning the validity of the predicted 18,000 increase in population growth?

    1. How does the SMP setback affect our out buildings? rebuild, improve, maintenance?

    Answer, non-conforming improve, maintenance, no problem. If over 50% of a non-conforming structure burns down, no rebuilding is permitted.

    1. Does the same apply to bulkheads?

    Answer, maintain, repair ok, but eventually DOE wants all removed. There is protection for single family dwellings. The DOE wants soft bulkheads.

    1. Where do you expect the population increase?
    2. Flexibility of shellfish protection, shoreline uses, setbacks?
    3. How will the merging of the Shoreline inventory and Characteristics with zoning be handled?

    Answer, fairly, East to West. Forest land is not the same as conservative.

    1. Suspicious of DOE/ SMP pattern of control, start with minimum impact, go to NO NET LOSS, go to enhance, end up with restoration?

    Answer, our duty is to protect, restoration is not required by law.

    1. “IF NOT YET? Then when?

    Answer, Priorities for restoration, Elwha, remove homes, Success of restoration of Jimmy Come Lately Creek, Elwha move levees back.

    1. Comment and Question, only a 200 foot set back? Shouldn’t it be more like 300 feet?

    Answer, Sometimes it is, take the flood plain add the wet land and it can be more.

    The questions are for documentation of PUBLIC CONCERN on the SMP update.

    Instead of these decisions being made by local elected officials, the Department of Ecology uses its position of authority to bully local jurisdictions and dominate the process — despite what Gordon White, Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program Manager for DOE (current salary $102,767) stated at the hearing (see 14:38).

    April 21, 2014

    Glen Morgan
    Adjunct Fellow

    Last Thursday, members of the Washington State Senate convened in Sumner to discuss the damaging effects of the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) on property rights.  We referenced this hearing here. Of particular interest in this discussion was the role the Department of Ecology plays in the SMP update process.

    Legislators in attendance were Sen. Pam Roach (R-31st), Sen. Bruce Dammeir (R-25th), Sen. Jan Angel (R-26th), Sen. Doug Ericksen (R-42nd), Sen. Bob Hasegawa (D-11th), and Rep. Graham Hunt (R-2nd).

    Pierce County Councilmembers Dan Roach, Jim McCune and Joyce McDonald also came to ask questions and listen to public comment.

    Fortunately, for all those unable to attend, you can see the complete TVW coverage of this hearing here, and I would strongly recommend anyone who cares about property rights, or who wants to see citizens point out the many problems with the Department of Ecology, to watch and share this video.

    Approximately 150 residents attended the hearing.  Many of them also testified.

    The meeting was initiated due to the concerns raised by many residents of Pierce County about the Department of Ecology imposing significant changes to the current Pierce County Shoreline Master Plan that are not supported by the public.

    The required seven-year update is taking place right now in Pierce County, and the façade of the SMP update being a “locally driven process” is quickly fading away. Nobody really believes there is much local control over the process. The public had a big laugh at the Department of Ecology during the hearing when its representatives made this claim.

    Instead of these decisions being made by local elected officials, the Department of Ecology uses its position of authority to bully local jurisdictions and dominate the process — despite what Gordon White, Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program Manager for DOE (current salary $102,767) stated at the hearing (see 14:38).

    In my testimony (at 1:03:00), I highlighted examples (obtained through public records requests) of Ecology’s negative attitude towards citizens and the dismissive attitude they have towards those who disagree with them.  Here they are, as promised:

    1)  DOE Water Quality Program Manager Bill Moore (current salary $92,592)  referring to property owners who participated in the public process at a public hearing in Asotin County in 2011 with contempt, specifically calling them  “rable” (the misspelling is his). Citizens are rable according to DOE Bill Moore

    2)  DOE Supervisor Erik Stockdale (current salary $69,588) refusing to recognize scientific studies that disprove long-held Ecology dogma and suggesting other Ecology employees hide e-mail records from the public by deleting them. See this classic Youtube video from the San Juans.  It is unknown how successful Stockdale and other DOE employees have been at violating state law by deleting other public records. DOE Erik Stockdale lets delete these public records

    3) Creating “messaging-guides” that recommend government officials avoid talking about the impacts the SMP has on property values, property rights and personal freedom. Instead, the guide says, they should appeal to fear. The guide goes on to recommend local government officials create a “compelling SMP story,” which includes “villains” (we can safely assume this means shoreline property owners).  “Opponents” are defined as people who support “freedom and prosperity” (page 4) and the Freedom Foundation as an example of an opponent (page 5).  Our tax dollars funded this.  SMP Messaging guide for bureaucrats and pro-SMP 2012

    4)  Ecology Director Ted Sturdevant (salary was $138,523 before he went to work in Gov. Jay Inslee’s administration as executive director of the Legislative and Policy Office) referring to arguments against proposed Ecology rules as “right-wing propaganda b******t,” and calling Republican politicians who disagree with his agency’s position: “f******s.”  DOE director Sturdevant calls Republicans fkrs DOE director Sturdevant calls WPC rwbullsht DOE director Sturdevant oddly attacks tea party

    Of the various attendees from all over Washington state who attended and testified at this hearing, nobody wants to see the health of the shorelines be degraded. However, there was clearly no confidence that DOE is an honest player in this process.

    This was certainly the case for residents of Lake Tapps, where Ecology is trying to force Pierce County to apply a 50-foot buffer around the shoreline of this manmade lake.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to the SMP updates, it is clear the Department of Ecology is not an honest participant in the process. Unfortunately, the evidence shows the Department of Ecology doesn’t regulate the environment, but it clearly does attempt to regulate people, dissenters and the message.

    We are thankful that some of our elected officials are starting to look into this situation, and last Thursday’s hearing was a great start towards exposing the truth about the abuse by state government agencies.

    “Rabble”

    Another sample DOE email shared by various DOE employees – citizens are at “homer simpson” level of intelligence: DOE employee Zink says citizens are like homer simpson level

    Still a little confused about how the Dept. of Ecology is organized at the top level?  That’s okay, most of these state agencies are set up to be a little confusing.  Here is a brief upper management org chart.  A more detailed and complete org chart can be obtained directly from the DOE via an information request.  The 1500+ emloyee positions are pretty well connected on that chart, but it will take you some time to sort it out.

    Update:  Here is a podcast from Seattle’s KTTH David Boze’s show.

    Liberty Live SEIU Up To Its Old ‘Tricks,’ Trying To Suppress The Truth Predictably, SEIU 775 isn’t taking the Freedom Foundation’s efforts to expose its reluctance to comply with Harris v. Quinn lying down.

    I have finally finished reading all 7 ESA Adolfson chapters for WRIA 17-19 SHORELINE INVENTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS on line.

     I have addressed the Public Access to Private Property issue based on their own statistics.

    Freshwater and the Marine for WRIA 17-19 SHORELINE INVENTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS

    On the 18 Marine reaches

    Contaminated sites they found (3)

    Impaired water quality sites (12)

    (1) contaminate site on the R3 Dungeness,

    Several on R1 Elwha (how many is several?)

    (2) on the R2 on the Hoko.

    (29) impaired water quality sites (based on how many factors?)

    (34) sites are described as impaired water caused by temperature.

    As far as I can figure out, the water in Clallam County is impaired because it is not cold enough.

    COLD ENOUGH?

     Based on the data in their reports, the amount of tree canopy, public access  and development are NOT factors in the water temperature?

    Perhaps 50 years ago the water WAS cold enough?

    Do they really think that throwing logs in the water and removing barriers  will change the temperature of the water?

    Changing Climate is a scientific fact. (NOT GLOBAL WARMING)

    THEY ARE DREAMING….

     NOW, NO NET LOSS

     (10) CONTAMINATED SITES, AT THE MOST, ALL BEING CLEANED UP AS I WRITE THIS.

    IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FISH… and the dams… and the endangered species and not a damn word about the damn fishing nets.

    ECOLOGYS 10 Unanswered questions  from July 12, 2012

     (1) Please provide copies of the scientific papers that definitively identify, the cause of marine and freshwater contamination?

    (2) Please provide copies of the scientific papers that definitively identify what caused the marine and freshwater contamination? People, development or industry or by birds, wild mammals or naturally present in the environment?

    (3) I am requesting a copy of the scientific papers on the DNA testing for impairment and contamination at the mouth of the Dungeness River.

    (4) Were ANY of the contaminated or impaired sites caused by? or as a result of? Clallam County 1976-2012 SMP failure to protect NNL of ecological function?

    (5) Please provide scientific papers on how the Clallam County SMP from 1976-2012 has failed to protect NNL of ecological function?

    (6) Please provide scientific papers on why DOE is demanding wider setbacks and buffer zones to protect NNL of ecological function?

    (7) Please provide scientific papers on how many single family residence were destroyed on Clallam County marine and freshwater shorelines, by rivers or tidal action as a result of? or caused by? or a failure? of Clallam County 1976-2012 SMP?

    (8) Please provide scientific papers on how many ecological disasters occurred as a result of? or caused by? or failure of? Clallam County 1976-2012 SMP?

    (9)Please provide scientific papers on how many injuries or deaths occurred as a result of? or caused by? or failure of? Clallam County 1976-2012 SMP?

     (10) As a member of the Clallam County SMP Advisory Committee I am asking for the exact location of every specific contaminated site and the full identity of EVERY contaminator.

    UNTIL the DOE can prove with site specific scientific papers that the Clallam County SMP 1976-2012 has caused any loss of ecological function, the current setbacks and buffer zones should remain in place or reduced.

    Subject: RE: JEFEREE STEWARD legal WRITTEN request for DOE WRITTEN answers

    Dear Ms. Hewett:

    Thanks for your reminder about several questions raised via email which are in the message below. As I indicated during Tuesday’s (7/10/12) Advisory Group meeting, in an effort to understand concerns you and others have expressed, Ecology representatives drove to Port Angeles in June, meeting with you and several Clallam County concerned citizens

    whom you had invited. That meeting was meant to address some of your concerns directly, and I thought we had a pretty good and frank exchange. Evidently, based on statements made since, you found our meeting somewhat less satisfactory.

    You have raised a number of pointed questions and asked for written responses. You have asked for “scientific papers” on a variety of subjects. You say my agency (and me specifically) has been “ignoring” your request. That is not my intent. Please understand, my job is to help Clallam County as well as several other jurisdictions to make progress in meeting legislatively required comprehensive updates to their Shoreline Master Programs. This various and complex work has to be done within limited timelines and budgets.

    I do appreciate the passionate engagement you demonstrate by active participation in the Advisory Committee. Ecology has limited resources and lots of responsibilities- we have to make choices that keep our focus on the work we have to do.

    Please remember that Ecology’s SEA Program leadership team did make an extra effort, driving to and from Port Angeles, listening to you and your colleagues, and sharing perspectives directly, face to face. We found that exchange helpful. We hope you and your colleagues also gained some understanding about the state’s perspective. At least that was our intention-and we had hoped it would be better received than just writing back and forth on details best addressed in other venues.

    I understand that you believe ecological functions have “improved” in Clallam County since 1976.

    And it is clear you believe the Department of Ecology is required to prove otherwise, point by point as noted. I did forward your message to Paula Ehlers. She and I discussed the request,

    and we both agree that, from what we have seen, Clallam County and their consultants are doing very competent and conscientious work in addressing the necessary scientific underpinnings that a shoreline program has to based on. We also recognize the County has been actively listening to and recording the concerns of all interested citizens and organizations, yours among them, and working those concerns in as the SMP update proceeds. We see our proper role as helping and encouraging the County in doing that work. We will proceed in doing that work.

    Again, thanks for your focus and engagement with Clallam County shoreline master program concerns.

    I hope we can continue to communicate as the work proceeds, showing mutual respect, and allowing for differences in perspective about what needs to be done.

    Sincerely,

    Jeffree Stewart

    BELLEVUE COUNCILMEMBER KEVIN WALLACE EXPRESSED HIS IRRITATION that the council has been briefed three times on shoreline master plan development, however, confusion about meeting DOE standards remains. He added there also needs to be more done to address private property rights in the plan.

    “That is not helpful in deciding how to regulate someone’s private property, whether there is a net loss of ecological functions,” he said.

    “SO, I JUST WANT TO LODGE MY PERSONAL FRUSTRATION. I’M JUST STUNNED THAT EVERY JURISDICTION IN THE STATE HAS TO GO THROUGH THIS AND DO THIS AND IN 2014 THE STATE OF THE LAW ON THIS IS SO UNCLEAR. … WHAT WE’RE BASICALLY LOOKING AT IS SOMEONE’S OPINION,” HE SAID.

    According to Richard Settle, an attorney specializing in environmental and land use law with foster pepper PLLC, “NO NET LOSS” IS A NEW AND AMBIGUOUS CONCEPT FOR WASHINGTON.

    While the DOE requires NO NET LOSS of existing ecological functions, Settle said that implies a tradeoff of development and restoration. He said there’s also an assumption that restoration doesn’t have to be immediate, and could take as long as 20 years depending on the development.

    He added there’s also confusion as to how far back in time restoration is supposed to match up with shoreline conditions.

    The purpose of the August 4, 2014 PUBLIC  HEARING is to provide an opportunity to make written and oral comments regarding Council-requested variations that are being considered to the Planning Commission’s draft Shoreline Master Program.

    The Planning Commission SMP Update recommendation was the subject of a prior public hearing that was held on May 5, 2014.

    During the July 14, 2014  Study Session, staff presented additional information requested by the Council during the course of its in-depth review. This additional information was Council to identify variations to the  Planning Commission Recommendation that they wished to be considered during the second Public Hearing, and prior to development of the Final SMP Update package for submittal to the Department of Ecology. Variations requested by the Council for consideration by the public are described below.

    1.Public Access

    The Council-requested variation to the Planning Commission

    recommendation would require public access (either physical or visual) to be provided as a component of new or expanded private recreation uses (such as yacht clubs, marinas and community clubs). This variation would build on the Planning Commission recommended requirement to provide public access to public uses (including parks, and transportation and utility infrastructure). A description of the Public Access variation under consideration by the City Council is included in

    Attachment A.

    2.Park Development.

    The Council- requested variation to the Planning Commission

    recommendation would permit all beach parks to be developed through an administrative permit approval process when a Master Plan had been previously adopted by the City Council.

    Under this variation, Meydenbauer Bay Park would be

    permitted in the same manner as other parks with Master Plans. A

    description of the Park Development variation under consideration by the City Council is presented in

    Attachment B.

    3.Determination of Ordinary High Water Mark.

    The Council-requested variation to the Planning Commission recommendation would allow for the measurement of setbacks from a fixed elevation as a default, with the ability for applicants to obtain a site-specific determination if desired.

    The fixed elevation would be

    3 based on a lake study such as the one conducted for Lake Sammamish in 2004. This variation would also include  clarification that the fixed elevations would not be used for the purpose of establishing shoreline jurisdiction or determining the location of ordinary high water mark (OHWM) for the purpose of properly locating a new dock or bulkhead. A description of the variation under consideration by the City Council for Determination of OHWM is presented in.

    Attachment C.

    4.Setbacksand Vegetation Conservation. The Council-requested variation to the Planning Commission setback recommendation would include a 50-foot  structure setback with the flexibility to reduce the setback and move toward the water through a series of menu options(or incentives). Existing structures on the site receive the benefit of a footprint exception to legally retain setbacks established by existing residential structures. A string test, allowing for setbacks to be reduced based on the location of structures on abutting properties, would also be included. Mitigation for potential loss of vegetation and vegetation retention would also be required. A description of the Setback and Vegetation Conservation variation under consideration by the City Council is presented in Attachment D.

    5.Residential Moorage.

    The Council-requested variation to the Planning Commission residential moorage recommendation would increase the allowed moorage walkway width from four feet to five feet in the first 30 feet waterward of OHWM. Variations to the balance of the Planning Commission recommendation on this topic were not considered.

     City Council

    The City Council has held study sessions to consider the Planning Commission’s draft Shoreline Master Program. Refer to the links below for council agenda materials and minutes on the topic.

    Planning Commission

    Residents and other stakeholders had multiple opportunities to provide feedback on the shoreline management update through Bellevue’s Planning Commission, residents who served as an advisory panel for the City Council.  The Planning Commission reviewed work products, provided input and guidance related to the development of goals, policies and regulations, and served as a preliminary approval board. Agendas for Planning Commission meetings in which the shoreline management update was addressed are available below.

    BELLEVUE SHORELINE PLAN ADVANCES

    Jul 20, 2013  The Bellevue City Council agreed on a two-prong strategy for updating the city’s Shoreline Master Program, and, ultimately, forwarding the plan to the state Department of Ecology for final review and approval.

    The shoreline plan is required by state law and provides a regulatory framework for managing shorelines in Washington. Local plans must be consistent with Ecology guidelines.

    THE BELLEVUE PLANNING COMMISSION HAS BEEN WORKING ON SHORELINE ISSUES FOR MORE THAN FIVE YEARS.

    In May, the commission recommended that the council consider several components of the plan update that had been completed and posted online for review.

    ECOLOGY CONDUCTED AN INFORMAL REVIEW AND SENT A LETTER TO THE CITY CONTAINING COMMENTS ON THE COMMISSION’S RECOMMENDATIONS.

    On Monday, the council directed city staff to work with Ecology on the content of the commission’s recommendations and possibly narrow the range of issues that need to be resolved. COUNCIL MEMBERS ALSO DIRECTED STAFF TO BEGIN WORK TO FINALIZE THE REMAINING ELEMENTS OF THE SHORELINE PLAN UPDATE PRIOR TO FORMALLY SUBMITTING IT TO ECOLOGY. The council plans to review and discuss the plan update during a study session later this year.

    COUNCIL TO DIGEST SHORELINE PLAN

    Mar 13, 2014 Bellevue city council members emphasized the importance of a strong public process Monday as they move through a series of presentations on the planning commission’s update to shoreline management regulations over the next four months.

    WITH THE PLANNING COMMISSION UNANIMOUSLY SUPPORTING ITS UPDATED REGULATIONS AND RESTORATION PLAN,

    The council now will be briefed on the contents of the SMP over the next four months,

    with a review of recommended policies for shoreline overlay set for April 14, 2014

    Apr 30, 2014

    Council has more questions about shoreline plan

    —————————————————————————————

    Apr 30, 2014 BELLEVUE COUNCIL MEMBERS HAD MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS BY THE END OF MONDAY’S THIRD ROUND OF INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS PROVIDED BY STAFF ABOUT THE PROGRESS OF CREATING A SHORELINE MASTER PLAN THE CITY HOPES WILL PASS STATE MUSTER.

    The City Council was updated Monday on the cumulative impact analysis and HOW BELLEVUE’S PLAN WILL ATTEMPT TO SATISFY A REQUIREMENT THAT NO NET LOSS OF ECOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS occur during future development and redevelopment along the city’s jurisdictional shorelines. THIS CAME AHEAD OF A MAY 5 PUBLIC HEARING for the city’s shoreline master plan, which will eventually go to the Washington Department of Ecology for final approval.

    Sarah Sandstrom, fisheries biologist for the Watershed Company, told council members “NO NET LOSS” goes further than just ecological functions of a shoreline, and includes also preserving shoreline views for residents and assessing the amount of reasonable development that could occur in the next 20 years along Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish.

    With a majority of Bellevue’s shorelines already developed, Sandstrom said residential redevelopment will likely be the most common occurrence and some new single-family development.

    The plan involves taking a qualitative look at the issue of NET LOSS, she said, as it’s hard to quantify restoration when a dock, for example, requires a certain amount of native vegetation to offset its impact as part of an “ECOLOGICAL TRADEOFF.”

    “Shoreline residential development falls under an exemption,” said Sandstrom of the no net loss requirement. “So, individual demonstration of no net loss is not required for shoreline residential development or for most permits that are issued as shoreline substantial development permits.”

    That does not mean the city will not need to ensure there is no net loss of ecological function, she told council, but that it will not need to be proven independently by the permit applicant. The project would be checked against current regulations that should result in no net loss.

    Bulkheads — vertical concrete barriers along shorelines — will not be allowed to be replaced under the shoreline plan, which instead favors a rocky slope. Bulkheads, said Sandstrom, negatively affects wave reflection. Bulkheads would need to be determined the only feasible option to be used.

    Sandstrom said another concern is that the plan proposes residential setbacks of 25 feet, which is less than the existing median setback of 50 feet for Lake Sammamish and Lake Washington.

    “The potential for houses moving closer to the shoreline has potential impacts in terms of water quality, moving pollutant generating surfaces closer to the shoreline,” she said.

    Should redevelopment of properties occur using a 25-foot setback, Sandstrom said there is also the potential of obstructing the views from other properties than are 50 feet from the shoreline.

    One option proposed to prevent this is a common line or streamline setback, which would require a new or redeveloped property to use the average setback of the two properties adjacent to it.

    Whether all of the effort being put into the plan will satisfy how the DOE defines “NO NET LOSS” may only be known once the shoreline master plan is submitted. According to Richard Settle, an attorney specializing in environmental and land use law with foster pepper PLLC, “NO NET LOSS” IS A NEW AND AMBIGUOUS CONCEPT FOR WASHINGTON.

    Shoreline plan set for August public hearing

    Jul 16, 2014 at 3:10PM Bellevue Mayor Claudia Balducci made it clear to City Council on Monday they had precious little time left to approve options for a draft shoreline management plan AHEAD OF AN AUGUST PUBLIC HEARING.

    COUNCIL MEMBERS PASSED IT BACK TO STAFF, CONFIDENT PUBLIC OPINION WILL CHANGE IT AGAIN.

    Public access

    The council passed forward direction to have the SMP expand public access to commercial shoreline properties that expand more than 20 percent, such as marinas and yacht clubs.

    LAND USE DIRECTOR CAROL HELLAND TOLD COUNCIL MEMBERS — CAUTIOUS OF VIOLATING PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS — access can be limited if security risks are present, and may also only apply to visual access in some cases.

    Siding with yacht clubs and marinas, Councilmember Jennifer Robertson pointed out they do offer public access — as long as people pay for it.

    Park development options

    Council members have heard public comment asking them to side with the city’s planning commission’s recommendation that Meydenbauer Beach Park — slated to be Bellevue’s most expensive park redeveloped at more than $40 million — REQUIRE a conditional use permit ahead of construction. The Meydenbauer Bay Neighborhood Association argues it would require a public hearing and allow residents to be more involved in its development.

    The City Council decided since a master plan exists for Meydenbauer Bay Park, future construction would be dealt with through administrative permitting and does not require a CUP.

    High water mark

    Robertson told council members they were making the wrong decision when they voted to set the high-water mark at a static elevation using the Bellevue Lake Study, which sets it at 31.8 feet, but allows for individualized assessment.

    She said she spoke to a scientist who told her the study was flawed, using two standard deviations.

    Councilmember John Chelminiak said the state Department of Ecology will make the ultimate decision on the SMP, and the council can choose differently, BUT THE PLAN MAY NOT BE ACCEPTED.

    “It is the latest study that has been done, and it is consistent, at least with what Sammamish set,” Chelminiak said.”I’m ready to vote,”

    ROBERTSON SAID. “I’M GOING TO BE AN EMPHATIC ‘NO’ “

    Setbacks, buffers and vegetation conservation

    Council members passed through an option to allow flexible setbacks of 50 feet, which property owners can buy down to 25 feet if they follow a string test and provide adequate vegetation conservation using set menu options.

    Balducci said the planning commission recommendation for 50-foot setbacks with greenscape options would result in net loss of native vegetation, and that replacing it with lawns is not what SMP regulations should encourage.

    Robertson said the commission’s option should be considered, but require greenscape only be allowed for two-thirds of the area required for vegetative conservation. She said string tests and menu options requiring unsightly native vegetation goes too far.

    Council members agreed to move forward with the 50-foot setbacks, string test and menu options, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING PUBLIC COMMENT WILL MODIFY THOSE OPTIONS to lessen vegetation requirements and allow greenscape where appropriate.

    “I would agree, this goes overboard,” Chelminiak said.

    A draft of the SMP will be developed by city staff ahead of an Aug. 4 public hearing, after which the council WILL DIRECT STAFF AGAIN on Sept. 8, 2014 on what regulations should be submitted to the DOE for review.

    THE PROGRESSIVE BUREAUCRATS, in WA DC, in Clallam County, WA State, Dept. of Ecology (DOE) and their globalist entourage etal. Paid, environmentalists’ Facilitators, including the United Nations Agenda.

    When the fearful citizens came forward  on Jan 26, 2011

    I said something.

    “When American citizen fear what their own government  is going to do to them, that is unacceptable to me.”

    At this point in time, Oct 17, 2017 why bother with the FEAR the Clallam County SMP Update caused, and became a matter of public record on Jan 26, 2011?

    —– Original Message —–

    From: zSMP

    Sent: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017 8:57 AM

    SUBJECT: PROPOSED CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE MASTER PROGRAM (SMP)

    INTERESTED PARTIES,

    You are receiving this notice because you are on the County’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update email notification list. The County Planning Commission recommended to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners a Draft SMP (September 2017) to update and replace: (1) the existing 1976 SMP (last amended 1992); and (2) procedures for administration (e.g., permit process) of the SMP in Chapter 35.01, Shoreline Management, of the Clallam County Code (CCC).

    PUBLIC HEARING:  A public hearing on the recommended SMP before the Clallam County Board of Commissioners is scheduled for December 12, 2017 at 10:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as possible in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 East 4th Street, Room 160, Port Angeles, Washington. All persons wishing to comment are welcome to either submit their written comments before the hearing is commenced or present written and/or oral comments in person during the public hearing. Written comments should be sent to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners, 223 East 4th Street, Suite 4, Port Angeles, WA 98362-3015, or emailed to:  SMP@co.clallam.wa.us

    REGIONAL PUBLIC FORUMS:  Prior to the public hearing, the County Dept. of Community Development will host 4 public forums to provide information on the SMP:

    Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    SUMMARY:  The SMP addresses compliance with the state Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58, and state SMP Update Guidelines (WAC 173-26).  It includes goals and policies, regulations for new development and uses, and administrative procedures (e.g., permit process).

    AREAS SUBJECT TO SMP:  The SMP applies to all marine waters, reaches of rivers and streams where the mean annual flow is more than 20 cubic feet per second, and lakes and reservoirs 20 acres or greater in size that are under the jurisdiction of Clallam County and to lands adjacent to these water bodies (together with lands underlying them) extending landward 200 feet in all directions from the ordinary high water mark; floodways and contiguous floodplain areas landward 200 feet from such floodways; and associated wetlands and river deltas.  To consolidate regulations, the proposed SMP also includes the full extent of the mapped 100-year floodplain and land necessary for buffers to protect critical areas as defined in RCW 36.70A that are overlapping or otherwise coincident with the shoreline jurisdiction as allowed pursuant to RCW 90.58.030(2)(d)(i,ii). The City of Forks is also considering the SMP for rivers inside the city limits. Maps showing the approximate lateral extent of the shoreline jurisdiction and proposed shoreline environmental designations are found in Exhibit A-Shoreline Maps of the proposed SMP.

    SMP DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION: The Draft SMP—Planning Commission Recommendation (September 2017) is available for review at the Department of Community Development in the Clallam County Courthouse and on the County‘s SMP Update web page at:  http://www.clallam.net/LandUse/SMP.html

  • Do WA State Legislators Have a Problem?

    The experts say, those who have a PROBLEM and those who are JUST DISTRACTED  requires real expertise.

    Does Governor Jay Inslee (D) have a problem?

    Do WA State Legislators Have a Problem?

    This problem,  requires real expertise? 

    So, I’m  asking informed voters to decide,

    If  Governor Jay Inslee (D) and the WA State Legislators have a problem?

    THESE ARE  “SYMPTOMS OF A PROBLEM vs. JUST DISTRACTED

    ——————————————————-

    1.LACK OF FOCUS

    Possibly the most telltale sign , “LACK OF FOCUS” goes beyond trouble paying attention. It means being easily distracted, finding it hard to listen to others in a conversation, overlooking details, and NOT COMPLETING TASKS OR PROJECTS.

    ———————————————————

    GET THE FACTS

    ————————————————————————————–

    What’s the problem?  I’m just asking you decide

    GET THE FACTS

    June 2017 In what has become THE NEW NORMAL, Washington state lawmakers are expected to go into a third special sessions … In 2013, it took 156 days and three special sessions. …

    2nd Special Session ends, 3rd starts with Inslee vowing to veto “stop …

    www.spokesman.com/…/2nd-special-session-day-30-could-also-be-3rd-special-sessio…

    Jun 21, 2017 – Second special session ended and a third one started Wednesday as … time in state history a Legislature failed to pass a two-year budget before … state’s public school system mandated by the Washington Supreme Court.

    2. HYPERFOCUS

    While people with this problem are often easily distractible, they may also have something called hyperfocus. A person can get so engrossed in something that they can become unaware of anything else around them. This kind of focus makes it easier to LOSE TRACK OF TIME and ignore those around you.

    ————————————————————————————–

    I’m just asking you decide

    So Distracted, so unaware of  anything else around them, more than 1 million kids in our public school system, that they failed to provide funding basic education for seven years?

    So, Distracted, so unaware, losing track of time on  the $100,000.00 dollar a day fine,

    Until the fines reached $96,000.000.00 million dollars?  for failing to fund BASIC public education since JUNE 28, 2011?

    ———————————————————————

    GET THE FACTS

    I’m just asking you decide

    Hyper-focused and so engrossed in something?

    IN  2015,  WA STATE  LEGISLATORS INTRODUCED 2,200 LAWMAKING MEASURES

    Unaware of anything else around them and ignore those around you?

    ———————————————-

    3. DISORGANIZATION

    Life can seem chaotic for everyone at times, but someone with ADHD typically has a more hectic life experience on a regular basis. This can make it difficult to keep everything in its right place. an adult with this problem, may struggle with these ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS. this can include problems keeping track of tasks and TROUBLE PRIORITIZING THEM IN A LOGICAL MANNER.

    —————————————————————–

    4.TIME MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS

    This issue goes hand-in-hand with DISORGANIZATION. Adults with with this problem often have trouble using their time effectively. THEY MAY PROCRASTINATE ON IMPORTANT TASKS, show up late for important events, or ignore assignments they consider boring. They may have trouble focusing on the future or the past — the “now” is often more top-of-mind for them.

    ——————————————————-

    5. FORGETFULNESS

    It’s human to forget things occasionally, but for someone with this problem,forgetfulness is a part of everyday life. This can include routinely forgetting where you’ve put something or what important dates you need to keep.

    Sometimes forgetfulness can be annoying but unimportant; other times,

    FORGETFULNESS IN ADULTS CAN BE SERIOUS.

    THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT FORGETFULNESS CAN BE DAMAGING TO CAREERS BECAUSE IT CAN BE CONFUSED WITH CARELESSNESS OR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE.

    ————————————————————————————

    GET THE FACTS?

    May 10, 2015 – Washington Supreme Court Holds Legislature in Contempt?

    Washington State Supreme Court called it   a Legislature problem contempt, unconstitutional  unstable and unfair:

    Relying on local levies or federal funding is unconstitutional because it is unstable and

    unfair: The fact that local levy funds have been at least in part supporting the basic

    education program is inescapable…..Reliance on levy funding to finance

    basic education was unconstitutional 30 years ago….and it is unconstitutional now (p.68)

    ———————————————————————————

    Use Poetic license, the freedom to depart from the facts of a matter writing in order to create an effect.

    THIS PROBLEM IS VERY COMMON MORE THAN 3 MILLION CASES IN THE US PER YEAR

    However, this is written  about this problem on line.

    ————————————————————

    What’s next?

    EFFECTIVE July 23, 2017 WA STATE NEW DISTRACTED DRIVING LAW

    HEFTY FINE of $99.00  for DISTRACTIONS that interfere with safe driving such as grooming, smoking, eating or reading is prohibited and can result in a if you are pulled over for another traffic offense

    HEFTY FINES? Using a handheld device while driving is considered a primary

    DISTRACTION offense under the new law. The first ticket for a DISTRACTED driving offense will cost at least $136.00 dollars.  A second ticket within five years WILL COST AT LEAST $234.00.

    Distracted driving violations can now be reported to insurance companies to use for rating and underwriting purposes. (and threats)

    ——————————————–

    YOU READ  THE SYMPTOMS OF THE PROBLEM.

    HEFTY! HEFTY! HEFTY!  FINE  $100,000.00 DOLLARS A DAY

    HEFTY! HEFTY! HEFTY!  FINE  $96,000,000.00 MILLION ACCUMULATED.

    Do WA State Legislators have a problem?

    Does WA State Governor Jay Inslee (D) have a problem?

    OR? ARE THEY JUST DISTRACTED?

    I’m just asking you decide

    ——————————————————–

    ATTENTION DEFICIT OF DISTRACTED DRIVERS (ADDD)?

    New WA distracted driving law starts July 23 – what drivers need …

    www.nbcrightnow.com/…/new-wa-distracted-driving-law-starts-july-23-what-drivers-need to know…

    Hyperfocused? Gov. Jay Inslee (D) vetoed the section that gave drivers until 2019 to acclimate to the changes and instead declared Sunday, July 23, 2017 as the law’s effective date.

    That’s when distracted driving behaviors ranging from eating while driving to answering a text at a stoplight could land drivers a hefty fine.

    Hyperfocused? Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  accelerated the – New WA distracted driving laws  start date to July 23, 2017

    ———————————————————————–

    THE EXPERTS SAY, TREATMENT CAN HELP, BUT THIS CONDITION CAN’T BE CURED

     I’m just asking you decide

    Which term is used to describe a new and secondary or additional problem that arises after the original PROBLEM  has been established?

    COMPLICATIONS…..

    JULY 19, 2017 these distracted legislators problems, violations and hefty fines can now be reported to  VOTERS to use for rating and underwriting purposes.

    This problem can be cured by informed voters, at every level of government.

    Donald J. Trump is President of the United States of America

    ————————————————

    The bottom line……

    To elected members at all levels of  the American government,

    LACK OF FOCUS, HYPER-FOCUS, DISORGANIZATION, TIME MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS AND FORGETFULNESS

    CAN BE DAMAGING TO CAREERS BECAUSE IT CAN BE CONFUSED WITH CARELESSNESS OR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE.

    And, how many of the 624 SMP Public comments have been shoved under the rug, through the combined efforts of ESAAdolfson  SMP Consultant Margaret Clancy (between 2012 and 2017)  and Steve Gray, Deputy Director/Planning Manager Clallam County Dept. of Community Development using after the fact cut off dates for public comment et al,  and  a matrix system?

    ——————————————————————————–

    Not one of you, the 2017 seated elected commissioners, participated in the Clallam County SMP Update between 2009 and 2013.

    The SMP ball is soon to be thrown into the your court, it’s time for you, the newly elected, on the block, to step up to the plate.

    ·    110711 – PHewett – G
    ·    #213 the Shoreline Management Act dictates that the Department of Ecology retains control over the final contents and approval of SMPs. Therefore, SMP regulations are the product of state action and are not subject to RCW 82.02.020.”

    ·    #191 As a property owner in Clallam County, I cannot imagine that you, as servants of the county, would even consider placing additional restrictions on residents who live near shorelines (marine, rivers, streams and lakes). Already we find ourselves so restricted that we are unable to use large portions
    ·    of our “privately” owned property.
    ·    100111 – PHewett – G
    ·    #190 Is it the intent, of two Elected County Commissioners, that total control of all private property in Clallam County, be given to the Federal Government and the WA State DOE, one way or the other?

    ·    #179 Public access across our property through our wetlands and over our berm to our private beach would be of great concern to us. Here are some questions and concerns we’d like addressed and you consider amending the provisions for providing public shoreline access:
    ·    090311 – ESpees – G
    ·    #178 The Drift Cells, Littoral Drift, and
    ·    Feeder Bluffs Construct are so much BS/Smoke and Mirrors.
    ·    090311 – ESpees – G
    ·    #177 The Shoreline Master Program Update is rigged. NNL & larger setbacks do not represent the ‘will of the people’. It does not protect the rights of the Citizens.

    ·    083111 – ESpees – G

    ·    are out of control.
    ·    083111 – ESpees -G
    ·    171 The SMA/SMP and the WRIA processes are a means of locking up, transferring ownership to the State, and regulating the use of these areas/preventing private economic and other beneficial use of these prime areas.

  • This is Not an EPA Matter?

    This is Not an EPA Matter?

    SO? IS THIS JUST AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM  LOOKING FOR A RESPONSIBLE PARTY?

    Documented for the record

    May 15, 2017 3:00 PM, I called and spoke with Bobbie at the Seattle office of the EPA 1-800-424-4372

    I warned EPA Bobbie of the eminent danger of a environmental disaster that will be caused when a house located the end of NE Buchanan Dr, in Clallam County WA, falls over the cliff onto our Rains Sr. Trust shoreline property and directly into the Straits of Juan De Fuca,  designated  waters of statewide significance.

    EPA Bobbie said, it was a unique problem, took my name and phone number and promised to return my call within an hour.

    EPA Bobbie returned my call, she called this number 1-360-4450, and said someone (no name) would call me.

    EPA Bobbie said, a direct quote  “THIS IS NOT AN EPA MATTER”  and that she had spent an hour of her time trying to help ME.

    I called the number, (no name) Jordan is  an employee of Jefferson County. Obviously, we agreed she CAN NOT help me with a Clallam County WA, ENVIRONMENTAL MATTER.

    IS THIS JUST AN EPA MATTER  LOOKING FOR AN EPA RESPONSIBLE PARTY SOLUTION?

    The solution is easy, tear down the house before it falls over the cliff.

    This is not a trick question….

     If nobody, takes action, when the house falls into Straits of Juan De Fuca  and an environmental disaster becomes a reality, who will be the responsible party?

    Will Clallam County Commissioners, the DCD,  be held responsible? Will Clallam County hard working citizens foot the bill to clean up the environmental mess?

     Will cleaning up the crushed pieces of the house after it falls over the 200 ft  cliff be an EPA  water cleanup recovery in the Straits of Juan De Fuca? (paid for by Clallam County WA taxpayers?)

    ———————————————————————

    Documented for the record

    The EPA has been put on notice and warned about this ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM, as have, WA DC Rep Kilmer, WA State Reps in Olympia, Clallam County Commissioners and the director of DCD, and as usual to my email list.

     note:  this email warning has been sent to my WA State Rep Derek Kilmer via his “email me”
