The <br />project proposes a (5) year maintenance plan to include cleaning of the ramp <br />up to 24 times per year. Said clean up would include the removal of up to 120 <br />cu. yds. of tidal debris that accumulates, up to 12 in. deep, causing difficulty <br />during the launching and/or removal of vessels. The debris would be placed <br />east of ramp, onto the beach, as requested by WDFW; when the fish window is <br />closed, the debris would be stored at an upland site. The project also proposes <br />the repair via paving of the existing approach road; all paving would occur <br />landward of the OHWM. The subject property is located within the <br />Conservancy shoreline environment designation with majority of the work <br />occurring within the Aquatic shoreline environment designation. <br />The City of Anacortes Department of Planning, Community & Economic Development has determined <br />that this project does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.
