Napavine Shoreline Master Program

Public comment period is closed

We held a public comment period on Napavine’s proposed update from February 21 - March 24, 2017. Mail and email were used to notify those who had expressed interest. No comments on the proposed master program were submitted.

Napavine’s proposed shoreline program will guide construction and development along approximately 1.4 miles of the Newaukum River shoreline. The SMP will replace the city's existing shoreline program that is now part of the Lewis County SMP. The proposed master program contains locally tailored shoreline management policies, regulations, environment designations, and administrative provisions as well as critical areas regulations to manage shoreline development throughout the city’s shoreline jurisdiction.

Next steps: our decision

We will decide if Napavine's proposed program 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 or with recommended changes.
  • Send the proposed program back to the City of Napavine 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.
