Public comment period closed
We held a public comment period on the City of Redmond’s (City) proposed locally initiated amendment to their Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The period for public comment was from Sept. 26 – Oct. 26, 2022.
The City’s amendment proposes several changes to their existing SMP to update shoreline jurisdiction descriptions and mapping to match a portion of Evans Creek that will be relocated in 2024. The changes are located in the Shoreline Environmental Designation section of the Comprehensive Plan, which is part of the City’s SMP. Revisions include an updated Shoreline Environments Map associated with Evans Creek, and revised descriptions of the Shoreline Jurisdiction surrounding Evans Creek. This amendment was locally approved through ordinance number 3084.
We used email to notify those who had expressed prior interest to encourage public participation and comment. We didn't receive any comments.
Next steps: our decision
We will compare the City's proposed program to the requirements of the Shoreline Management Act and the Shoreline Master Program Guidelines. Based on the comparison we will decide whether to:
- Approve the program as is.
- Approve with recommended changes.
- Send the proposed program back to the city with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may also be included with the required changes.
