Why is this something to be concerned about?
• If you ever have experienced problems in your neighborhood resulting from localized flooding, then here is your chance to help influence policies to address the issues.
• If you are concerned about how Stormwater affects watersheds or Puget Sound, this is your chance in Shoreline to impact these policies.
• If you are concerned about how Stormwater affects salmon or other wildlife habitat , this is a chance to get involved.
• If you'd like to see Shoreline make changes to improve surface water policies and planning, here is your chance to make a difference.
If you are concerned about pollution and its impacts to streams in your neighborhood, this is the time to speak up.
