Shorelines Board

The Bothell Shorelines Board completed its recommendations for the 2019 Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update on April 8, 2019, following six public meetings, including an open house. This update was limited in scope to address:

  • Changes to the Shoreline Master Program Element of the Imagine Bothell…Comprehensive Plan, reflecting guidance from the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology).
  • Changes to Bothell Municipal Code (BMC) Title 13, Shoreline Management, to reflect Ecology guidance.
  • Changes in Shoreline Jurisdiction and Environment Designations to reflect changed conditions since the last SMP update in 2013.
  • Changes to reduce redundancies and add clarification.

The recommended amendments include minor changes to the Shoreline Master Program Element of the Imagine Bothell … Comprehensive Plan and somewhat more substantive changes to the Shoreline Management regulations in Title 13 of the Bothell Municipal Code.

The City Council is scheduled to consider these amendments at a May 14 study session and a July 4 public hearing (see the City Council page for more information as those dates approach). 


Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.
