Bainbridge Island Limited Amendment

Public comment period is closed

We held a public comment period on Bainbridge Island limited amendment to its Shoreline Master Program from May 8 through June 9, 2017. We used mail and email to notify those who had expressed prior interest. We received written comments from 60 individuals and organizations.

Response to public comment

We prepared a summary of public comments and sent this to the city of Bainbridge Island on Aug. 16, 2017. The city will write a response to the public’s comments and be posted here when available. Please check back.

Next steps: Our decision

We will decide if the city of Bainbridge Island's proposed program amendment meets the requirement of the state Shoreline Management Act and our Shoreline Master Program Guidelines. We will decide whether to:

  • Approve the program as is.
  • Approve the program with recommended changes.
  • Send the proposed program back to the city of Bainbridge Island with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may also be included with the required changes.
  • Deny the program amendments in instances where no alteration of the proposal appears likely to be consistent with state law and regulations.

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