Clallam: Planners hear pros, cons of proposed stormwater regulations


Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES, WA-- A stream of voices supported Clallam County's proposed stormwater management ordinance at a Clallam County Planning Commission hearing Wednesday.

But some also questioned its impact on doing business in the county.

While Chris Burns, representing the state Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, praised the state Department of Ecology's stormwater management manual as the ``best document around,'' Mike McAleer, with the Sequim Association of Realtors, said the manual threatens to harm the county's building industry.

``The major concern is that no analysis has been done to determine the cost and impact on affordable housing, a county comprehensive plan element,'' said McAleer, the association's co-chair of government affairs.
