    Thank you for putting this up. I had seen this report and I was dumbstruck.
    Is the Shoreline Management Act the one that was written 1971? I feel uneducated about how this works: how is this related to a dock that is only 18 inches above the water and one that is 24 inches. I am also curious why the Port of Seattle leased this area to Ballard Kayak knowing that by doing so would violate the Shoreline Management Act.

    Nice post!
