South Cle Elum

Public comment requested May 21 through June 21, 2021, at 5 p.m.

South Cle Elum and Ecology are seeking public comment on the town's periodic review and proposed update to its Shoreline Master Program (SMP).

Proposed amendments to the South Cle Elum SMP are limited to changes to the Shoreline Management Act and our rules since the master program was last updated in 2014.

We will compare the town's proposed amendment 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 town with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. We may include recommended changes with the required changes.
