Shoreline Master Program:

The Columbia River and Entiat River are designated as Shorelines of the State. Development along these shorelines is regulated by the City’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The current SMP is in the document archives on this website. You can find this by clicking into the Archives, Forms & Documents link of the main screen, just below the beautiful Bald Eagle.

The SMP is currently undergoing a periodic update. The Planning Commission is reviewing the SMP during their regular monthly meetings. The public is invited to attend the meetings or provide written comments to the City during the plan update process. The Planning Commission will host a public meeting after the draft update is completed, anticipated to occur in February 2021.
