Wahkiakum County Property Owners Face Shoreline Ordinances

Having successfully fought of a planned National Heritage Area, Property Owners now want direct input to these processes of Shoreline and Land Use Ordinances.     As Wahkiakum County moves into updating its shoreline and land use ordinances, one may be certain there will be vigorous public input.

National Heritage Area Opposed in Colorado.

Canyons and Plains National Heritage Area.  Colorado's private property owners are aware of the threats to Property Rights and State Sovereignty as are citizens in Washington State who oppose the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area.  "Colorado - What if you discovered there was an organization working to undermine your private property rights, subvert your local sovereignty and compromise the sanctity and integrity of your locally elected officials through the imposition of a National Heritage Area (NHA) in the region where you live? What if your local jurisdictions financed this organization for many years through block grants and lodging taxes?
