Conconully SMP comprehensive update

Public comment period April 2, 2018 through May 2, 2018

Provide your comments on the town of Conconully's proposed amendment to its shoreline master program (SMP). Public comment period opens April 2 and runs through May 2, 2018, at 5 p.m.

Conconully has prepared a comprehensive SMP that reflects the local vision for appropriate shoreline development, public shoreline access, and environmental protection as required by the state Shoreline Management Act. Conconully’s shoreline program will regulate shorelines within the town adjacent to Conconully Lake and Conconully Reservoir. This SMP includes goals, policies, regulations, shoreline environment designations, administrative procedures, and definitions. This SMP increases protection and restoration of habitat and water quality, provides more certainty for development, and improves public access and recreational opportunities.

We will compare Conconully's proposed program to the requirements of the state Shoreline Management Act and Shoreline Master Program guidelines. Based on the comparison, we will decide whether to:
  • Approve the program as is.
  • Approve the program with recommended changes.
  • Send the proposed program back to Conconully with required changes to meet statutory and rule requirements. Recommended changes may also be included with the required changes.
