A Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Periodic Review is underway, as required by the Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58.080(4). The SMA requires the Bucoda 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 Town plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information/improved data that have occurred since the 2012 SMP comprehensive update. Review documents are posted below and are available at Town Hall. Interested parties can join the project email list by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. A joint comment period was held with Ecology from June 23 – July 23, 2021, additional written comments can be submitted September 1 – 14, and a joint public hearing with Town Council will be held at 6:45 pm on September 14, 2021, at the Bucoda Community Center South Room, 204 S. Main St., Bucoda, WA 98530. After Ecology’s Initial Determination, Town Council will consider local adoption and send the final draft SMP amendments to Ecology for final approval.
