Duvall Shoreline Master Program: Comprehensive Update

On May 23, 2017, the Department of Ecology approved the City of Duvall’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) comprehensive update. Per RCW 90.58.090, the effective date of Duvall’s shoreline program is June 6, 2017, 14 days after Ecology provided notice to the City that their shoreline program was approved.

The comprehensive update revises the existing shoreline program, including the goals, policies, regulations, shoreline environment designations, and administrative procedures and definitions. The updated shoreline program will replace the City’s existing shoreline program adopted in 1974. This approval puts the final stamp on a significant effort that increases protection and restoration of habitat and water quality, provides more certainty for development, and improves public access and recreational opportunities.

The Department of Ecology held a public comment period for the City of Duvall SMP from March 24, 2017 to April 24, 2017. Ecology used mail and email to notify those who had expressed prior interest. No comments were submitted during the comment period.
