On May 3, 2018, we provided changes to the city of Napavine on their Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The required and recommended changes are based on our review of whether or not the proposed update complies with state laws and rules, and a public comment period held February 21 through March 24, 2017.
Mail and email notices were used to notify interested parties of the public comment period. We did not receive any comments.
The SMP, the city's first, will replace the existing shoreline program for the city that is part of the Lewis County SMP. The city's SMP will regulate development along approximately 1.4 miles of shoreline along the Newaukum River. The new master program contains locally tailored shoreline management policies, regulations, environment designations, and administrative provisions as well as critical areas regulation to manage shoreline development throughout the city's shoreline jurisdiction.
The city may agree to the required and recommended changes that we sent them or offer alternative language. Final approval will occur when the city and Ecology agree on language that meets state requirements
