Cle Elum SMP periodic review

Public comment requested Aug. 16 to Sept. 15, 2019

Cle Elum and Ecology are seeking public comment on the city's periodic review and proposed update to their Shoreline Master Program (SMP).

The Cle Elum SMP periodic review amendment proposes to make minor changes to provisions regarding:

  • Adoption of policies and regulations for identifying, protecting, and preserving cultural, archeological, and historic resources.
  • Additions to the definitions section.

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