Shoreline Master Program Periodic Review

The City completed a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA). The SMA requires each SMP be reviewed and revised, if needed, on an eight-year schedule established by the Legislature. The review ensures the SMP stays current with changes in laws and rules, remains consistent with other City of Everett plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information, and improved data.

The City's locally adopted SMP was submitted to the Department of Ecology for approval.
