Bingen Shoreline Master Program: Comprehensive Update
Public Comment Requested - October 25, 2017 to November 27, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
We are seeking public comment on the City of Bingen’s proposed update to its Shoreline Master Program.
The City of Bingen has prepared a comprehensive Shoreline Master Program (SMP) that reflects the local vision for appropriate shoreline development, public shoreline access, and environmental protection as required by the Shoreline Management Act (RCW.90.58). Bingen’s SMP covers shorelines adjacent to the Columbia River, which is comprised of privately owned land historically used for water-oriented industrial purposes. This SMP includes goals, policies, regulations, shoreline environment designations, administrative procedures, and definitions. This SMP increases protection and restoration of habitat and water quality, provides more certainty for development, and improves public access and recreational opportunities.
