Description
Abstract
                            Line representation of the City’s shorelines that are regulated by the Shoreline Master Program. Linework identifies a shoreline environment designation and individual shoreline reaches that correspond to the Shoreline Characterization and Inventory.
                          
Purpose
                            Each shoreline reach is assigned a shoreline environmental designation
(designation) in accordance with BMC 22.03.30. These designations function like a zoning overlay for shorelines and provide a framework for allowing certain uses and implementing shoreline policies and regulations. The shoreline environmental designation has been assigned consistent with the criteria specified in WAC 173-26-211 and referenced in APPENDIX C - Shoreline Environment Designation Criteria (SMP)
