!:!! RANCES CATTO ,ively interest in proposed e shoreline legislalion was raced by the large attendance ie public meeting sponsored ~ANCE Feb. 2 in the I'UD Aorium in Shelton. The :ence of over a hundred pus was representative of d concerns and interests ,(ling county ', " pmnnmg groups, e Department of Ecology, Strial, timber, oyster growers ,owners of beach residences. lpeakers were Walter Spencer. from the office of (;ov. iel J. Evans, and Mrs. Joan ~mas of Bellevue, vice ident of the Washington tonmental Council. Spencer ~ted the highlights of the ilative proposals of the ernor for regulatbm of { shoreline use and Mrs. Thomas answered questions relative to the provisions of Initiative 43, sponsored by the W.E.('. The two shoreline proposals, Spencer pointed out, have much common ground, with the chief difference being in the ainount of emphasis on local planning in the administration bill. "The philosophy and approach," he said, "are not radically different." "We can't afford," he went on, "to have a situation in the State of Washington where shorcline uses are unplanned and chaotic. We've seen results of this in other areas, ecologically, socially and in economic terms to0." "Questions and comment from the audience came fast for Did You Know o a. 5 Yo of the new one-family homes being sold in ~e under $15 000 price bra'cket are mobile homes. !~ Large Spencer, who was fielding questions about both pieces of legislation. The late arrival of Mrs. Thomas (substituting at the last moment for Dorothy Morrell) released the first speaker, who had been "pinned down" past his time to leave. Whether or not provisions of the bills were made clear in the rather emotional and excited atmosphere, as someone commented, "People had a chance to get their worries off their chests.'" Among areas in which a great deal of confusion was noted was misinterpretation of the recent opinion by the state attorney general's office regarding the use by the public of beaches of the state fronting the Pacific Ocean, as applying to other beaches. The policy expressed in a brief held that the public had used the ocean beaches for so long that it l,,d an easement to cross the land. Hi~ office, through a suit, is seeking to settle the question of the public use of accreted lands Eleven grants of $750 each will be awarded this year by Simpson Timber Company in the 25th year of its Mark E.

IIs on the ocean beaches. Some mistakenly confused this court matter with provisions of the shoreline legislative bills. Reassurance also seemed to be needed in regard to the term, "management" as waterfront residential owners were under the misapprehension that their private property was to be under the management control of the state. They were assured that Initiative 43 would not destroy private property rights, that no permits were to be required for construction of homes and bulkheads on single family residential property; and that there can be no confiscation of private property under this act. While primary responsibility is given by Initiative 43 to the State Department of Ecology for the planning and regulating of development on ail saltwater shorelines, and those of lakes larger than 20 acres and navigable rivers, local units of government must adopt ordinances for the smaller lakes and streams. Also local officials and private citizens are to assist the department through Regional Citizens' Councils in preparing the comprehensive plan. Local plans can be incorporated into the state plan if they meet overall guide lines, it was explained. The interest and concern shown by the people attending the LANCE meeting shows the need, members felt, for strong citizen groups to work and cooperate with the local Mason County Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners in their land use shoreline planning. Mrs. A.J. (Charlotte) Celestine, president, chaired the meeting.She explained the group's objectives (Local Action for Natural Clean Environment) and told of'the three membership categories, organizations, individuals and youth.
