Auburn: Periodic review

On April 24, 2020, we approved the city of Auburn's Shoreline Master Program (SMP) amendment and periodic review. Per RCW 90.58.090, the effective date of the city’s revised SMP will be May 8, 2020, 14 days after we provided notice to the city that their shoreline amendment was approved.

Auburn's amendment includes a number of updates to administrative procedures, integration of the city's current critical areas provisions, and revision to some non-conforming standards in the SMP.


A state public comment period was conducted from Dec. 16 through Dec. 31, 2019. We used mail and email to notify interested parties of the public comment period. We received comments from the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe – Fisheries Division, and King County Flood Control District. A summary of the comments along with the city’s response and our conclusion, are provided in Attachment B Public Comment Summary (below).
