Public comment period is closed
We held a public comment period for Pierce County’s proposed comprehensive update to their Shoreline Master Program. The period for public comment was from March 15 through April 29, 2016. An open house and public hearing were held at Pacific Lutheran University on March 30, 2016. More than 50 people attended the hearing and 26 individuals testified.
Email was used to notify those who had expressed prior interest. A news release and legal ad were also used to encourage public participation and comment. Verbal and written comments were received from over 130 individuals/organizations. Comments are focused on aquaculture, proposed shoreline environment designations, water access facilities, public participation, tribal treaty rights and a variety of other topics.
