While we were able to avoid signs in our draft wetlands CAO for now, we nevertheless know where some community members want to take this County.
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign? We might as well be a lifelike display at Disneyland or a Potemkin village.

I was off on the prices of the signage.
See excerpt below from King County Wetland regs:
Wetland Not in Tract
Wetland signs and fences may be required by the department.
Sign and fence Requirements
The signs must be placed at the edge of the required buffer, between the buffer and
the 15-foot BSBL. The spacing of the signs will be determined during the review of
the development proposal. Generally signs are spaced every 50 feet to 150 feet and
stationed in a prominent location (i.e. at the closest point to the proposed
development). Signs may be attached to a post or fence. Wetland Areas Boundary
signs are available from the King County Department of Development and
Environmental Services for $2.50. A Stream Sign Installation Detail is available from

How about "permanent and obvious..." ? More than just having a legal record of where the buffer is supposed to be, the purpose of markers is to visually dissuade people and ATVs from overusing the buffer area and thus compacting the soil or unintentionally disturbing wildlife in the wetland. A survey pin would not accomplish that.
