CRITICAL INFORMATION FOR KITSAP COUNTY WATERFRONT HOMEOWNERS
SHORELINE RESTORATION ALTERNATIVES FOR KITSAP COUNTY SHORELINES
Here are just a few reasons why it's important to you:
1. Under this ordinance, the county will control (for environmental purposes) 200 feet from the high water mark of your property. This means they can control the vegetation on your property, no gardens, no lawns, no ornamentals. They are even proposing annual inspections of your property.
2. You will not be allowed to expand your home or add structures.
3. Your home will be classified as non-conforming which means that you will not be able to get title insurance, which will hamper your ability to sell your property, re-finance as well as affect the value of your property.
