2022 - 2023 Shoreline Master Program Periodic Update
Grant County Coalition Shoreline Master Program Periodic Update 2022 - 2023
Grant County and the Communities of Grand Coulee, Electric City, and Soap Lake (Coalition) have partnered to update their Shoreline Master Programs (SMPs) in compliance with the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA) and adopted state shoreline management guidelines. This work is funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology). The Coalition, in coordination with Ecology, will work to develop common SMP elements, share outreach materials, and obtain technical input from local, state, and federal agencies, as applicable. Through this concerted effort, each jurisdiction will have developed a tailored SMP consistent with shoreline conditions, local policies, and plans, and state requirements to provide for environmental protection, appropriate shoreline use and development, and public access. It is also expected that Ecology will be able to approve the SMPs provided to them by each Coalition member, through collaboration and the communications that will occur during the development of the SMP elements and public participation process.
