"The Council’s 5 to 2 approval on Tuesday marked the first major overhaul of the Pierce County Shoreline Master Program since it was created in 1974. [ . . . ] The state said the county must do more to protect Lake Tapps and Spanaway Lake. It said properties there must have 75-foot buffers between the shoreline and any new development or redevelopment."
