Shoreline Master Program Approved As Amended

Overview of the Shoreline Master Program Approval and Adoption Process

After two years of combined effort invested by community residents, city staff and citizen advisory committee members to create the City of SeaTac Shoreline Master Program, the city council on Tuesday, January 26 approved an amended version of the plan which included the revision of the Shoreline Setback from 75-feet to the existing 65-feet, and becomes effective February 6, 2010. 

The council approval authorizes the amended Shoreline Master Program to be submitted to the Washington State Department of Ecology for acceptance action.  Upon review the State Director of Ecology has the option to approve the program as written; approve with additional changes required; or deny.  No dates were provided during the meeting as to when state approval is expected to be complete.

Congratulations to all who were involved in helping to achieve this milestone.  Your investment of personal time and efforts are very much appreciated.
