Workshops are available for people interested in learning more about water issues where steep slopes and ravines exist.  "Burien has approximately 5 miles of marine shoreline which includes stretches of steep, eroding "feeder bluffs" that provide sand and gravel that replenishes beaches and provides fish habitat critical for maintaining the health of Puget Sound."

6/3/2012 - COMMUNITY BEACH:  DOG COMPLAINT

Message received on our website: 

"I am having a HUGE problem with the lack of respect for our public and private beaches. Many people from our communities believe it a off leash dog park. My children are chased and many times dog poops on the beach and owners just leave the mess behind. Not to mention the chasing of wildlife. Please advice in your next newsletter. If you are looking for a dog park don't come to the beach."

A continuing problem.  Take your dog to the beach, but please clean up after it and be sure your animal is not being a nuisance.  Using the beach property is a privilege.  Be thoughtful of others.


Beach Resident Notice 10/15/10

SHOREWOOD ON THE SOUND NEIGHBORS:

The Shorewood on the Sound Community Club is Completing some work started on the Community Beach Property. The day will be Friday October 15th, 2010. The time is approximately 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. This work should be completed by 5:00 PM or before similar to last week.

Residents should be able to move around the equipment. This appeared to be the case during the project last week.

The Community Beach will be closed to the community during this project for safety reasons. Community Members who need beach access will need to use the Boat Ramp which is 300 feet to the North of the beach access trail.

There are some dangerous trees on the sandy hillside which will have some of the weight removed to prevent toppling and associated bank erosion and root displacement. Other trees which are dead will be topped to remove wind barriers which can also topple and cause erosion.

The larger pieces will be cut into lengths and remain on the bank for bank stabilization. The smaller branches will be chipped with the biomass being blown back onto the hillside to enhance the nitrogen content for future foliage growth. Residents are encouraged to use the cut and stacked pieces of wood for their personal use. Come to the beach and haul it away at your leisure. You may take a piece or all of it.

We need your help on the chipping part of this project. The tree service will have the chipper on 30th above the beach property to blow chips on the bank. It would be very convenient if the tree service could keep the equipment in place without moving it for vehicles travelling on 30th Avenue during the time frame of the project. You could help by having your vehicle on the roads above the locking gate until the end of the project. Another option is to wait until the project is completed. However, vehicles will be able to maneuver around the equipment similar to last week.

Of course, in emergency the Tree Service would move the equipment immediately.

For more information please contact Joe Cail at 206.242.6315 home, or 206.715.1499 cell.

Thank you for your cooperation in completing this project.

Sincerely,

Joe Cail
Director

Beach Resident Notice 10/8/10

SHOREWOOD ON THE SOUND NEIGHBORS:

The Shorewood on the Sound Community Club is having some work done on the Community Beach Property on Friday October 8th, 2010. The time is approximately 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

This work should take one day but may also need some morning time on Saturday to complete. The Community Beach will be closed to the community during this project for safety reasons. Community Members who need beach access will need to use the Boat Ramp which is 300 feet to the North of the beach access trail.

There are some dangerous trees on the sandy hillside which will have some of the weight removed to prevent toppling and associated bank erosion and root displacement. Other trees which are dead will be topped to remove wind barriers which can also topple and cause erosion. The flat area of the beach has a Madrona which is leaning and being supported by a dead Maple.

The larger pieces will be cut into lengths and remain on the bank for bank stabilization. The smaller branches will be chipped with the biomass being blown back onto the hillside to enhance the nitrogen content for future foliage growth.

We need your help on the chipping part of this project. The tree service will have the chipper on 30th above the beach property to blow chips on the bank. It would be very convenient if the tree service could keep the equipment in place without moving it for vehicles travelling on 30th Avenue during the time frame of the project. You could help by having your vehicle on the roads above the locking gate until the end of the project. Another option is to wait until the project is completed.
