Houseboats under attack by DPD! We need your help
DPD’s 2nd Draft of the Shoreline Master Program has been published and has serious consequences for Houseboat and Housebarge owners. Please review these proposals very carefully. DPD has indicated the comment period for the 2nd draft will end 12/9/11. We feel this timeframe is unreasonably short, given the major changes between Draft 1 and Draft 2, the holiday period during the comment period, and give the original comment period was significantly longer.
PLEASE LEND YOUR SUPPORT BY SENDING IN YOUR COMMENTS BY 12/9/2011

LULA’s position on these regulations are that they are being applied unfairly by only targeting houseboats and house barges, while allowing unlimited growth of liveaboard vessels and allowing liveaboard vessels to dump grey water unrestricted into Seattle waters.
The LULA board has requested meetings with Margaret Glowacki on multiple occasions and so far we have not been granted a meeting. Why?
LULA has developed an alternative proposal which we believe fairly and reasonably addresses the 2 primary issues (as stated by representatives from DPD and SMP);
