EXCLUDED SMP DOE WAC’S DO NOT BECOME LAW

Letter addressed to Sheila Roark-Miller, elected Director of the Department of Community Development:

 

This is very important with regard to the Clallam County SMP Update.

 

This ison the DOE Public Trust Doctrine web site (88 pages)
Finally, SMPs, unlike other comprehensive plans,

are adopted as WAC’S and become part of the state’s Shoreline Master Program.

As such, all local SMP rules, regulations, designations and guidelines

BECOME STATE LAW AND ARE ENFORCEABLE.
in this manner, protection of public trust resources and uses becomes binding.

 

If an SMP DOE WAC is excluded from the SMP UPDATE

IT DOES NOT BECOME LAW.

If an SMP DOE WAC is not written into the SMP UPDATE

IT DOES NOT BECOME LAW.

 

It is within your power,  as our elected official, to EXCLUDE/REMOVE WAC’S from the Clallam County SMP update.

 

I resent the fact that this is vital SMP information is HIDDEN on page 88 of the DOE Public Trust Doctrine website.
