Edmonds Shoreline Master Program: Comprehensive Update

On October 19, 2016, the Edmonds City Council sent a response to Ecology’s conditional approval of the City of Edmonds (City) Shoreline Master Program (SMP) update. For required changes one through six, the City accepted Ecology’s required changes and offered alternatives that Ecology finds are consistent with the SMA and Ecology guidelines, and with the original intent of the required changes. The City also proposed alternatives to Ecology’s required change seven and eight concerning Edmonds Marsh buffers and setbacks. Ecology’s January 10, 2016, response letter formally accepts the City’s final determination on Ecology’s required changes one through six. Ecology’s Attachment G proposes counter options to the City’s October 19th alternatives for required changes seven and eight regarding buffer requirements adjacent to Edmonds Marsh.

An SMP public comment period was held from February 25, 2015 through March 27, 2015. Ecology received 143 written comments from Thirty-one citizens, three agencies, one tribe, and one corporation. The public comment and city's responses have been incorporated into Attachment D: Comment Summary.

Final Ecology approval will occur when the city of Edmonds and Ecology agree on language that meets state requirements.
