Shorelines Board

The Bothell Shorelines Board was reconvened in Spring 2022 to address a limited scope of updates:

  • Update Shoreline Management regulations to reflect 2020 FEMA amendments for flood plains.
  • Streamlining recommendations from stormwater plan analysis.
  • Buffer enhancement incentives – review current provisions allowing reduction of standard buffer width in exchange for buffer enhancement.
  • Clarify shoreline variance requirements and process.

The Board held a study session in April and June, and a public hearing in July that was continued to September 12.
