Dear San Juan County Neighbors and Friends,
On Friday, the County sent out two emails providing links to very important information about the Critical Area Ordinance (CAO) that went into effect on March 31, 2014. We are passing the County’s information along to you.
The CAO regulates wetlands and will also regulate shoreline properties until such time as the County updates the Shoreline Management Plan (SMP). Staff is drafting the SMP update now. These regulations can impact the use of your property.
Messages from the County:
The May 2014 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) bulletin pertaining to critical area regulations is now available to the public via the following link:
Some folks have indicated that the critical area regulations are difficult to find under the County’s published code. Please refer to the attachment below (at the very bottom of this page) to find these regulations in the county code.
