Public invited to comment on Snoqualmie shoreline plan

The city of Snoqualmie is currently in the process of revising its updated Shoreline Master Program in response to comments provided by the Washington State Department of Ecology.

The program is a planning and regulatory document required by the State Shoreline Management Act that establishes local policy and regulation for land use, environmental protection, public access, and development within designated shorelines. The updated plan will have jurisdiction over all lands within the 100-year floodplain of the Snoqualmie River in the City, and, in addition to the underlying zoning, will regulate types and intensities of land use allowed.

The first step in the update revision process is preparing the Shoreline Inventory, which includes a map identifying inventory segments of the area under SMP jurisdiction. The inventory will provide a basis for the characterization and shoreline use designations in the SMP.

A draft of the Shoreline Inventory report is available at www.ci.snoqualmie.wa.us. Comments should be sent to Lauren Hollenbeck at the City of Snoqualmie, PO Box 987, Snoqualmie, WA 98065 or by email to lhollenbeck@ci.snoqualmie.wa.us on or before Monday, April 12.
