Sandy Mackie joins the Common Sense Alliance

Common Sense Alliance is pleased to announce the addition of Sandy Mackie, a leading land use attorney of the Perkins Coie Law Offices, Seattle, to its team of professionals: including practicing attorneys, civil engineers, licensed and certified hydrologists, geologists, and business leaders. CSA looks forward to having Mackie’s guidance and assistance in resolving the critical legal issues as proposed in the draft Critical Areas Ordinances and Shoreline Management Program prepared by San Juan County. Mackie’s  curriculum vitae can be found at

CSA’s mission is to educate Islanders, as well as the San Juan County Council, staff, and Planning Commission on the law and process regarding updates to the CAO and SMP.  As a part of this mission CSA considers it critical for all to consider the social, economic and environmental impacts of change upon our rural way of living, and to evaluate and balance those competing interests as common sense advises and the law requires. Such an effort requires resources, human as well as financial, to reach out to the community.
