The Hardel Site is among a set of industrial sites located on the shore of West Bay Watersheds on Budd Inlet. Southern Bud Inlet is part of the Deschutes Estuary. It is currently owned by the Hardel Plywood Company, and is ready for development. This is a useful case study in the implementation of the Shoreline Management Act by Local Government and cumulative impacts on Puget Sound Shorelines. The City of Olympia has jurisdiction.


Regulatory Context

  • The site was given an "Urban Intensity" designation in the City 2015 shoreline master program, defined as follows "Urban Intensity: The purpose of the Urban Intensity environment is to provide for high‐intensity water‐oriented commercial, transportation, industrial, recreation, and residential uses while protecting existing ecological functions and restoring ecological functions in areas that have been previously degraded, and to provide public access and recreational uses oriented toward the waterfront." (from City of Olympia 2015 Shoreline Management Program).
