Coordination of compatible uses and resolution of use conflicts requires continuous effort, extending beyond the planning and permit process and requiring long-range committment of staff and capital to maintain public access sites and sustain fish and wildlife habitat values as stipulated by development permit approvals. During the past two years the Port of Seattle has undertaken 55 million of marine facilities construction. In this period all projects have included elements for public access and mitigation as distinct project elements. This paper describes the recent experience of the Port of Seattle in planning and implementing public access improvements and fish and wildlife mitigation actions.
