        Barbara Dykes        

Barbara was the principal guide for Snohomish County government with respect to adoption and implementation of Growth Management Act mandates from 1996 to 2007, in her capacity as lead land use attorney of the Office of the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney (head of land use division 1996-2003; Chief Civil Deputy 2003-2007).  Barbara litigated many of the County's threshold GMA decisions before the Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board.  As Chief Civil Deputy, Barbara managed this 42-person public law firm.  She directed the County's legal representation for land use and environmental matters and a wide range of municipal law and tribal issues, as well as overseeing all tort and employment litigation for the County. 
She also represented the County in negotiations on large public private partnerships, such as the original agreement with Boeing to build the first 787 line in Washington State, the NASCAR proposal to build a track in Snohomish County, and siting the Brightwater regional wastewater treatment plant.  She played a primary role in the County's response to the federal listing of Chinook salmon under the Endangered Species Act, rolling out a complete regulatory and operational response to the listing.  She also guided the County's response to state permit requirements as they changed periodically under the National Permit Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).  In addition, she has a great deal of experience in code drafting, particularly with respect to natural resources and critical areas codes. 
In 2007, the Snohomish County Council appointed Barbara as the County Hearing Examiner.  In that position, she decided quasi-judicial cases concerning land use permits, environmental appeals, and code enforcement.  She was an adjunct professor at Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment teaching environmental and natural policy.  Ms. Dykes served as Chair of the Environmental and Land Use Law Section of the Washington State Bar Association in 2005-06.  She is a frequent speaker at Continuing Legal Education seminars on a variety of land use and environmental law topics. 
Ms. Dykes is licensed to practice in Washington and Alaska.  She is a cum laude graduate of Hastings College of the Law (University of California), where she was Senior Note Editor of the Hastings Law Journal and a 1066 Foundation Public Law Scholar.  Upon graduation from law school, Barbara clerked at Division One of the Washington State Court of Appeals before starting her 20-year career in government.  She served on the Purchase of Development Rights Oversight Committee for Whatcom County, which recommends purchase of development rights on agricultural land to the Whatcom County Council to help save working farm land.
