Environmental Hearing HB-2581
On Tuesday, 1/28, public testimony was given for House Bill 2581 to the House Environmental Committee. This bill provides a definition for “floating on-water residence” for purposes of the shoreline management act. Classifies a floating on-water residence that ispermitted or legally established before July 1, 2014, as a conforming preferred (water dependent) use.
While we are making great progress with the City to assure the preservation of existing houseboats, this bill assures that existing houseboat vessels will continue to maintain their preferred use status, allowing them to be maintained, remodeled, and protected as needed.
