Cathlamet Shoreline Master Program

Public comment period is closed

We held a public comment period on the Town of Cathlamet's proposed comprehensive update to their Shoreline Master Program from October 25 through November 30, 2017.

We used mail and email to notify stakeholders and those who had expressed prior interest. We also issued a blog post to encourage public participation and comment. We received one written comment letter that focused on fish and wildlife habitats and species.

Response to public comment

We prepared a summary of public comments and sent the summary to the Town of Cathlamet on December 5, 2017. Cathlamet provided a written response to comments addressing the issues raised during the public comment period.

Next steps: Our decision

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

  • Approve the SMP as is.
  • Approve the SMP with recommended changes.
  • Send the proposed SMP back to Cathlamet with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may also be included with the required changes.
Relevant documents will be posted on this website when they become available. Please check back.
