Washington State Department of Ecology - June 27, 2013
SPOKANE – The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) is seeking public
comment on the city of Millwood’s proposed comprehensive update of its shoreline
master program. The updated shoreline master program will influence development
along the Spokane River shoreline within city limits.
Millwood residents and businesses helped the city tailor a program that protects existing shoreline functions while enhancing public access. The program emphasizes the importance of maintaining the current mix of residential and industrial uses that occupy the shorelines.
Ecology will accept public comment on the city’s proposed shoreline program through 5 p.m. July 29, 2013. Comments and questions should be sent to Jaime Short, Department of Ecology, Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program, Eastern Regional Office, 4601 N. Monroe St., Spokane, Wash. 99205. Email Short at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509-329-3411.
