Redmond SMP: Periodic review

We are seeking public comment of the city of Redmond's proposed amendment to it's Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The public comment is from Aug. 5 to Sept. 4, 2019, at 5 p.m.

Redmond's SMP periodic review amendment proposes to make minor changes to provisions regarding:

  • Administrative polices and regulations.
  • Critical Areas regulations.
  • Definitions.

The SMP applies to both the in-water and adjacent upland areas, including the Sammamish River, Bear and Evans creeks, and Lake Sammamish.

We will compare Redmond's proposed SMP 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 Redmond with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may also be included with the required changes.
