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.
