Recruitment for the Shorelines Hearings Board

AWC is seeking to fill a vacancy on the Shorelines Hearings Board. Local government has the primary responsibility for initiating the planning required by the Shorelines Management Act and administering the regulatory program consistent with the policy and provisions of the Act.

Local government administers and issues shoreline substantial development, conditional use, and variance permits. Approvals by local government of shoreline conditional use and variance permits must be reviewed by the Ecology, which then issues the final decision.

The Shorelines Hearings Board hears appeals from these permit decisions, and from those shoreline penalties jointly issued by local government and Ecology, or issued by Ecology alone. The Board is not affiliated with any other unit of government. Members serving on the board shall receive compensation, travel and subsistence expenses as provided in RCW 43.03.050 and 43.03.060.
