Beaux Arts Village Shoreline Master Program: Comprehensive Update
On August 14, 2014, the Department of Ecology approved the Town of Beaux Arts Village Shoreline Master Program (SMP) comprehensive update. Per RCW 90.58.090, the effective date of Beaux Arts Village shoreline program is August 28, 2014, 14 days after Ecology provided notice to the town that their shoreline program was approved.
The proposed update revises the existing shoreline program, including the goals, policies, regulations, shoreline environment designations, and administrative procedures and definitions. Beaux Arts Village’s program will provide for the continuation of upland residential development and the use of the Western Academy of Beaux Arts community park which is consistent with the town’s zoning ordinance and comprehensive plan. The comprehensive update of the shoreline program will also promote protection and restoration of riparian habitat.
On August 14, 2013, the Department of Ecology provided the Town of Beaux Arts Village with required changes to the town’s proposed comprehensive update of their Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The changes are based on Ecology’s review of whether or not the proposed update complies with state laws and rules, and a public comment period held April 1 – May 3, 2013.
Ecology used mail and email to notify those who had expressed prior interest. Ecology also issued a news release to encourage public participation and comment. Ecology received one written comment which focused on permit notification, piers and docks, mitigation, dredging, navigation, fill and shoreline stabilization standards. On June 11, 2013, Ecology sent a summary of comments to the town for their response. The public comments and town’s responses have been incorporated into a Responsiveness Summary.
