Shoreline Master ProgramAuthor: admin | Category: Issues
From the Department of Planning and Development (Shoreline Master Program Update):
The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has begun the process of revising Seattle’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) for the first time since 1987. The SMP establishes policies and regulations governing land use along marine and freshwater shorelines. Seattle’s shorelines include Puget Sound, Lake Washington, Lake Union and the Ship Canal, the Duwamish River, and Green Lake. The area affected by the SMP is generally 200′ landward from the waterline. DPD is working with the Washington Department of Ecology to complete the update of Seattle’s program by the spring of 2010. If you are interested, participation in the process is through the Citizens Advisory Committee and their schedule is posted.
