Subject: SMP update
Thank you for contacting me regarding King County's Shoreline Master Program (SMP). I appreciate your feedback and am writing with an update.
Two weeks ago, I proposed a striking amendment to the SMP that included a "natural" designation for the property in question on Maury Island. I was prepared to vote for that amendment on Monday in order to meet the state's December 1 deadline for SMP adoption. A majority of my colleagues chose to delay that vote by sending the legislation back to committee.
This afternoon, however, I had the great pleasure of joining Executive Constantine at a press conference to announce the proposed purchase of the 235-acre site on Maury Island's eastern shore, owned by CalPortland. This is exciting news, as it will allow us to preserve this critical shoreline area.
Again, thank you for your input on this issue. Please feel free to contact me in the future at (206) 296-1001 or email@example.com.
