Klickitat County Thinking About Shoreline Management Update

Klickitat County Commissioners are trying to decide how best to handle an update of the county’s shoreline management plan.  The County is the only one in Washington to have not completed an update, and the Yakama Tribe has asked the state Department of Ecology to step in and do it.  Commissioner Rex Johnston says Ecology has offered the County up to a 250-thousand dollar grant to do it, but he notes they are worried it they accept the money, the state would want more control.  Johnston says the current County plan is similar to the state’s plan, with 100 foot riparian buffers along most shorelines.
