04/12/2017: "DOE Wants Changes In County Shoreline Regs"


San Juan County has drafted recommended changes to the county Shoreline Master Program (SMP, and the Washingtion State Department of Ecology(DOE) read the proposed update and suggested 64 changes, some of which are comprised of multiple recommendations, they would like to see the County make.

DOE also read in excess of 50 public comments from individuals and special interest groups who commented on the propose SMP update, and forwarded those comments, and their comments, to the County.

The SMP update includes changes to both the goals and polices, and the regulations that are intended to realize those goals and policies related to land use and construction from high tide to 200 feet landward.

The State cannot impose the changes, but in the past they have threaten to either cut off, or reduce, funding to the County if certain conditions of their interpretation of state laws and rules are not complied with; and of course ignoring DOE recommendations may lead to a successful appeal process.

If DOE and the County agree on the plan, then DOE will “approve” the plan as sumitted.
