Stevenson SMP update & periodic review

Public comment period is closed

We held a public comment period on the city of Stevenson's proposed comprehensive update and periodic review amendment of their Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The public comment period was open from May 1 through June 3, 2019.

We used both mail and email to notify stakeholders and those who had expressed prior interest. We received  one written comment letter regarding a technical report on salmonid cold-water refugia habitat in Rock Creek.

Response to public comment

We prepared a summary of public comments and sent them to the city on June 14, 2019. On July 29, 2019, the city provided a written response to comments addressing the issues raised.


Next steps: our decision

We will decide if Stevenson's proposed SMP update meets the requirements of the Shoreline Management Act and the Shoreline Master Program Guidelines. We will decide whether to:

  • Approve the program as is.
  • Approve the amendment with recommended changes.
  • Send the proposed program back to Stevenson with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may be included with the required changes.

Relevant documents will be posted on this website when they become available. Please check back.
