2020 Periodic Review

Body

Project background

Oct. 25, 2019 CVTV Close Up Segment

Clark County is undertaking a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58.080(4). The SMA requires each 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 Clark County plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information and improved data.

There will be public outreach and engagement throughout the process, including opportunities to comment on the proposed amendments, as detailed in the Public Participation Plan. The county collected informal feedback in fall 2019 through community outreach activities and developed a revised draft proposal for public review in early 2020. A public comment period on the revised draft was held January 28 – February 27, 2020. A video/telephonic joint hearing with the Clark County Planning Commission and Department of Ecology was held on August 20, 2020. A work session with the Clark County Council is scheduled for October 21, 2020.

Updated information about the periodic review, including schedules and opportunities for involvement will be posted on this page.

Project timeline

The project was originally scheduled to run from fall 2019 until mid-summer 2020. Click here for a detailed copy of the original project timeline. In keeping with the social distancing protocols in place to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Clark County has suspended in-person meetings until further notice. This has caused the timeline of this project to extend further into the future than originally planned. Below please find a revised project schedule.
