Shoreline Plans

Shoreline Master Program

The City of Everett has about 25 miles of marine and freshwater shorelines. The beauty and recreational opportunities of the shoreline come with a responsibility to balance development in an urban setting with environmental protection and public access to Everett's shorelines. For shorelines of statewide significance (i.e., marine waters, Snohomish River and estuary, and Silver Lake), the state approved (October 18, 2019) is the guiding document containing policies and regulations.

Shoreline Public Access Plan

The focus of the Shoreline Public Access Plan is on improving trail connections along the shorelines with conveniently located siting areas at key points of interest and to identify shoreline trails and other public facilities with directional signs and maps.
