tree removal

Published by at 9:22 am under Liveaboard Topics

About a month ago I filed a complaint with the Seattle Buildings and inspection department objecting to the removal of four trees just to the North of the marina office. I objected that these were mature trees that were possibly within the shoreline management acts distance from the water that would require a permit. The cities tree removal ordinance (SMC 25.11) requires a permit also.
The complaint was assigned to a Betty Rasmussen. I spoke with Betty today and she says that she contacted a Robert Hoyman at the port asking for a arborist report. The file number of the complaint is 009478-19CP. I offered to Betty to be the point person for this issue since she is swamped with complaints. Post to this forum and I will relay to Betty.
This is not the first time the marina has removed trees with no apparent notice. I mostly want to know where substitute trees have been planted as required under the law. I will update the community as further developments occur. Thank you. Dan Kruzich, D-11.
