Description ZON2021-00049: SMALL SCALE TOURIST AND RECREATION CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT WITH MAJOR VARIANCE AND State Environmental Policy Act (“SEPA”) to ensure the Marrowstone Inn is in conformance with provisions governing Rural Recreational Lodging or Cabins. Small-scale recreation and tourist use is a recreational and tourist proposal that is reliant upon a rural setting or location; do not include any new residential development beyond that allowed in the underlying land use district; and otherwise meet the performance standards in Jefferson County Code (JCC) 18.20.350. The proposal consists of parcels totaling 8.3 acres. Pursuant to Jefferson County Code (JCC) 18.20.350 (1)(q) and 18.20.350 (9)(a), the proposal requires a variance from the 10-acre parcel minimum size requirement. Additionally, the applicants are requesting a variance from JCC 18.20.350(9)(b), to allow more than the 6000 square feet (SF) of development for 10 acres to accommodate the existing 11 rental cabins totaling 9,097 SF with an additional assembly space, garage with caretaker’s unit above, and three utility buildings totaling 4,459 SF (excluding the caretaker's residence). The applicant has demonstrated that the property has been operated as a beach resort, meaning it is a legal nonconforming use (“grandfathered”) pursuant to JCC 18.20.260. The timeline indicates that Marrowstone Inn was operated starting around 1937 and provides a survey done in 1954 showing the operation of the inn with several one-room fishing cabins. There is also a brochure for the operation of the Marrowstone Marine Station highlighting “three-week” stay packages and promoting the newly developed lodge. These are just a few pieces of the many documents the applicant presented to prove continuous use of Marrowstone Inn. Please see Appendix A – History and Timeline (Appendix A) for details. Extend Yourself LLC proposes to renovate and improve the existing structures, upgrade the septic system to meet current Environmental Public Health (EPH) standards for commercial operations, add a sauna, improve existing paths onsite, add more gravel parking, reestablish a dense native landscape along the shoreline buffer, protect the wetland with a conservation easement, to improve the shoreline functions and values and add two "glamping" tents on the property.

SDP2021-00012: SHORELINE VARIANCE WITH SHORELINE SUBSTANTIAL DEVELOPMENT PERMIT to remodel and renovate existing non-conforming cabins. The renovations include lateral, landward development within the shoreline jurisdiction. A small portion of waterward development includes supplying existing non-conforming cabins 1-4 with the required septic transport lines. Once installed, the applicant will plant a native grass seed mix to bring the area back to pre-disturbance conditions. There are two wetlands on-site, a category I marine wetland and a category IV wetland, with a 300-foot and 40-foot buffer, respectively. The applicants are requesting an administrative buffer reduction of 25% per JCC 18.22.730 (9), making the wetland buffer 225 feet, rather than 300 feet. The entryway to cabin 3 will be relocated to the eastern side of the cabin, a lateral expansion that is parallel to the shoreline of Oak Bay. The previous unpermitted expansion of a restroom in cabin 5, installed by previous owners without any permits, is proposed to remain and be permitted through this shoreline permit and with a built-without-permits (BWOP) building as a lateral expansion to the shoreline of Kilisut Harbor and is envisioned as restroom facilities for the guests utilizing this cabin. Associated road access improvements and portions of the septic lines are proposed waterward of cabins 1-4. The septic system has been designed to minimize land disturbance in association with the onsite contours and conditions. The proposal will bring the property into compliance with all local and state regulations. The proposal is supported by a Shoreline, Wetland, Fish and Wildlife Habitat, and FEMA Floodplain assessment prepared by Soundview Consultants (Assessment).

Project
Description
ON- SITE AGGREGATE AND RECYCLED CONCRETE PROCESSING FACILITY - The processing facility is proposed to be located at the active Shold Pit Mine operating under 2019 Washington State Department of Natural Resources Expanded Surface Mine Reclamation Permit no.70-013112. Sand and gravel aggregate resource is currently excavated, piled, and hauled directly off site to a separately permitted processing facility located west of the mine site across Chimacum Road. The off-site facility is used for processing and sales of sand and gravel resource extracted from the mine site, as well as for storage, processing, and sales of recycled concrete received at the processing facility. Shold proposes to move its off-site processing operations to the expanded mine site including crushing, screening, storage, and sales of sand and gravel resource as well as importation, crushing, storage, and sales of recycled concrete. This will reduce traffic crossing Chimacum Road and consolidate their mining-related activities onto one site. Aspects of the proposed project include use of a rock crusher and screens for sand and gravel aggregate processing, storage of cured concrete material imported onto the site, crushing of the cured concrete into recycled concrete products, and storage and sales of all of products to commercial customers.
Shold anticipates that the processing facility will be moved to the mine floor when the extent of the mine excavation allows adequate room for processing and storage. The scales will remain in the northwest corner by the site entrance. Each facility location includes a new well to provide water for dust suppression. This project requires a Type III Conditional Use Permit with public notice, public hearing, and decision by the Jefferson County Hearing Examiner. This project also requires State Environmental Protection Act (SEPA) review and determination, a Stormwater Management Plan, revised Expanded Reclamation Permit from the DNR, an updated Washington State Department of Ecology Sand and Gravel Permit, and a Notice of Construction through the Olympic Regional Clean Air Authority.

Parcel Number 721031007
Project Description Shoreline conditional use, shoreline substantial development, and flood development application for new Pacific geoduck (Panopea generosa) farm on 5.15 acres of tidelands in Squamish Harbor. The geoduck planting area extends from about +2 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) down to approximately -1-foot MLLW and -2-foot MLLW. The proposed aquaculture will be located at least 16.4 feet from the edge of a native eelgrass (Zostera marina) bed.

The geoduck farm will consist of four-inch-diameter by 10-inch-long PVC tubes placed into the substrate during low tide. One PVC tube will be inserted per square foot of planting area, with three- to five inches of the tube exposed above the substrate surface. Geoduck seed will subsequently be placed in installed and submerged tubes by divers. Once a geoduck seed is planted, the tube will then be covered with mesh caps and secured with UV resistant rubber bands. After two years, the tubes will be removed, and geoducks will be harvested about five or six years after planting.

The following upland parcels will be used as part of this proposal:
(1) An unimproved, upland parcel zoned rural residential (0.29 acre) along Shine Road would be used for secondary parking for aquaculture project;
(2) An unimproved, upland parcel zoned rural residential (1.26 acre) accessed from Shine Road would be used for tube storage and parking for the aquaculture operation;
(3) A Jefferson County park (William R. Hicks Park), located immediately west of the geoduck farm, may be used for parking; and
(4) A state park (Shine Tidelands State Park), located immediately north of the Hood Canal Bridge, will be used as a boat launch.
No ground disturbing activities are proposed at any of these four sites.

The applicant submitted the following reports: Biological Evaluation (and Addendums), Eelgrass Delineation (and Addendums), Visual Assessment, Cumulative Impacts (and Addendum), Habitat Management Plan/No Net Loss, and Gear Management Plan.
