CC RESO 1373RESOLUTION NO. 1373 (2018) A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOTHELL, WASHINGTON RATIFYING THE 2017 UPDATE TO THE LAKE WASH I NGTON/CEDAR/SAMMAM ISH WATERSHED OR WATER RESOURCE INVENTORY AREA (WRIA) 8 CHINOOK SALMON CONSERVATION PLAN WHEREAS, the 2017 update to the WRIA 8 Chinook Salmon Conservation Plan ("Plan") is an addendum to the 2005 WRIA 8 Chinook Salmon Conservation Plan, and includes a scientific framework, Chinook salmon population goals to achieve sustainable and harvestable populations, habitat restoration goals, recovery strategies, a list of priority projects and programmatic actions, and a monitoring and adaptive management plan; and WHEREAS, 28 local governments in WRIA 8 partner through an interlocal agreement to jointly fund implementation of the Plan through 2025 to advance their shared interest in and responsibility for addressing long-term watershed planning and conservation of aquatic ecosystems and floodplains for purposes of implementing the Plan and improving watershed health; and WHEREAS, the WRIA 8 partners recognize participating in the ILA and implementing priorities in the Plan demonstrates their commitment to proactively working to address the ESA listing of Chinook salmon; and WHEREAS, WRIA 8 partners took formal action in 2005 and 2006 to ratify the Plan, and WHEREAS, in March 1999, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries listed the Puget Sound Chinook salmon evolutionary significant unit, including the Cedar and Sammamish populations in WRIA 8, as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA); and WHEREAS, an essential ingredient for the development and implementation of an effective recovery program is coordination and cooperation among federal, state, and local agencies, tribes, businesses, researchers, non-governmental organizations, landowners, citizens, and other stakeholders as required; and WHEREAS, local jurisdictions have authority over some habitat -based aspects of Chinook survival through land use and other policies and programs; and the state and tribes, who are the legal co -managers of the fishery resource, are responsible for addressing harvest and hatchery management in WRIA 8; and WHEREAS, the City of Bothell values ecosystem health; water quality improvement; flood hazard reduction; open space protection; and maintaining a legacy for future generations, including commercial, tribal, and sport fishing, quality of life, and cultural heritage; and WHEREAS, the City of Bothell supports cooperation at the WRIA level to set common priorities for actions among partners, efficient use of resources and investments, and distribution of responsibility for actions and expenditures; and Page 1 of 3 WHEREAS, the Plan is one of 15 watershed -based chapters of the Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan; and WHEREAS, the Puget Sound Partnership serves as the Puget Sound regional organization and lead for planning and implementing the Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan, approved by NOAA Fisheries; and WHEREAS, in WRIA 8, habitat protection and restoration actions to significantly increase Chinook productivity trends are necessary, in conjunction with other recovery efforts, to avoid extinction in the near term and restore WRIA 8 Chinook to viability in the long term; and WHEREAS, the Plan recognizes that salmon recovery is a long-term effort, and focuses on a 10 -year implementation time horizon to allow for evaluation of progress and updating Plan goals and priorities; and WHEREAS, the City of Bothell has implemented habitat restoration and protection projects, and uses the Plan and salmon habitat recovery strategies and goals as guidance in its land use and public outreach policies and programs; and WHEREAS, it is important to provide jurisdictions, the private sector and the public with certainty and predictability regarding the course of salmon recovery actions that the region will be taking in WRIA 8, including the Puget Sound nearshore; and WHEREAS, if insufficient action is taken at the local and regional level, it is unlikely Chinook salmon populations in WRIA 8 will improve and it is possible the federal government could list Puget Sound Chinook salmon as an endangered species, thereby decreasing local flexibility. NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOTHELL, WASHINGTON, DOES RESOLVE AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. To conserve and recover Chinook salmon and other anadromous fish, focusing on preserving, protecting and restoring habitat with the intent to recover listed species, including sustainable, genetically diverse, harvestable populations of naturally spawning Chinook salmon. Section 2. To provide multiple benefits to people and fish through Plan implementation, including flood hazard reduction; water quality improvement; open space protection; and maintaining a legacy for future generations, including commercial, tribal and sport fishing, quality of life, and cultural heritage. Section 3. To continue to work collaboratively with other jurisdictions and stakeholders in WRIA 8 to implement the Plan as updated in 2017. Page 2 of 3 Section 4. To use the habitat goals and associated recovery strategies in the 2017 Plan update as a basis for local actions recommended in the Plan and as one source of best available science for future projects, ordinances, programmatic actions, and other appropriate local government activities. Section 5. To support implementation of the 2017 Plan's Monitoring and Assessment Plan on a watershed basis, including an adaptive management approach to implementation and funding to address uncertainties and ensure cost-effectiveness by tracking actions, assessing action effectiveness, learning from results of actions, reviewing assumptions and strategies, making corrections where needed, and communicating progress. Section 6. To use the 2017 Plan project list, recommended land use and education and outreach actions, and other actions consistent with the Plan as the suite of WRIA 8 actions to guide priorities for implementation and funding, including through grants, local capital improvement projects, ordinances, and other activities. Section 7. To use an adaptive approach to funding the Plan through both local sources and by working together (within WRIA 8 and Puget Sound) to seek federal, state, grant, and other funding opportunities, and recognizing that funding assumptions, strategies, and options will be revisited periodically. Section 8. The City Clerk is authorized to make necessary corrections to this resolution including, but not limited to, the correction of scrivener's/clerical errors, references, resolution numbering, section/subsection numbers and any references thereto.
