The SMP is developed under guidelines established by the Department of Ecology. It is an important document that plans for and protects the City’s shorelines and waterways. The current SMP was adopted in 2013, however, the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) requires each SMP be reviewed and revised on an eight-year schedule established by the Legislature. The purpose of the Periodic Review is to stay current with any changes in laws and rules, respond to changed circumstances, and incorporate any new information and improved data.
Your organization has been identified as a stakeholder and will be updated / e-mailed throughout the periodic review process. In addition, you may sign up with the City’s Shoreline Master Program e-mail list that has been made available to the public at: dupontwa.gov/list.aspx
There may be a quorum of Council Members and Planning Commissioners present.
