An overflow crowd of more than 150 citizens gathered at the Key Peninsula Fire Department station in Home Monday, July 16, to seek information from Pierce County Shoreline Regulation officials. Among them were special projects coordinator Debby Hyde, environmental biologist Dave Risvold and Planning and Land Services specialist Mike Erkkinen.
Many participants expected a formal presentation by the county but found the assembly area covered with detailed posters displaying shoreline features graphically and via aerial photography. The county officials explained features of concern to those present and answered questions related to the proceedings.
More public meetings are scheduled at 6:30 on Aug. 1 at Peninsula High School and Aug. 22 and 29 at Pierce County Annex in Tacoma.
Questions about the update process should be directed to the planning staff by calling 253-798-7156.
