City of Seattle and Department of Ecology.
The City of Seattle and Washington Department of Ecology are seeking comments on proposed amendments to the City's Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The joint local/state public comment period will run from April 1 through May 1, 2019, 5 p. Authority for this update is based on Washington's Shoreline Management Act (Ch. 90.58 RCW) and related rules. At the conclusion of the comment period, the City will prepare a response to comments and determine if changes are needed. Public comments and the City responses will be shared with Ecology. After the City makes any final amendments to the SMP it will send them to Ecology for review. Ecology will review amendments for consistency with state laws and rules and decide whether to approve the program as adopted, or recommend changes.

Links to the proposed SMP amendments and options for providing comment are listed below. You may also access the City's report for the text and background on the amendment listed below. A joint local/state public hearing will be held on May 1, 2019, at 9:30 a.m. with the City Council's Planning, Land Use and Zoning Committee in the City Council Chambers, 2nd floor of Seattle City Hall.
