October 4th, 2012 at Thu, 4th, 2012 at 4:19 pm by Richard D. Oxley

Residents who still have questions or comments about Poulsbo’s Shoreline Master Program — a plan that regulates development along four miles of Liberty Bay and local wetlands and creeks — have one last chance.

The city submitted its updated plan to the Department of Ecology in July. Ecology opened its comment period Sept. 24. Comments are being accepted until Oct. 26 at 5 p.m.

Comments can be submitted to Joe Burcar via email at joe.burcar@ecy.wa.gov; or to Department of Ecology, Northwest Regional Office, c/o Joe Burcar, 3190 160th Ave. SE, Bellevue, Wash., 98008.
