City of Seattle Releases Draft Shoreline Restoration Plan
The City of Seattle has released a second draft of its updated Shoreline Master Program, revised to comply with rules set by the Washington Department of Ecology in WAC chapter 173-26.
The City also recently released its draft Shoreline Restoration Plan. The Plan includes a detailed inventory of current shoreline conditions and identifies priority opportunities for restoration. While the Plan does not establish regulatory requirements, several of the SMP’s policies point to the Plan as a guide for improving shoreline ecological function. The deadline for public comments on the Shoreline Restoration Plan is February 10, 2012.
