Sammamish Shoreline Master Program: Comprehensive Update
The City’s updated program will provide significant improvements in the protection, use, development, and restoration of the City’s nearly 12 miles of shoreline along Lake Sammamish, Pine Lake and Beaver Lake. It will also promote the protection and restoration of shoreline habitat, accommodate historic land use patterns, and support public parks along the City’s shorelines.
The program combines local plans for future shoreline development and preservation with new shoreline development ordinances and related permitting requirements. Appeals of the Ecology’s approval of Sammamish’s updated shoreline program may be filed with the Growth Management Hearings Board. See Appeals (below) for details.
Sammamish's updated program also:
On May 5, 2011, the Department of Ecology provided Sammamish with required and recommended changes to the City’s proposed update submitted to Ecology in October 2010. These changes were needed to meet state law and requirements for shoreline program updates. The City agreed to most of the changes, and offered alternative language for others. Final Ecology approval has occurred now that the City and Ecology have agreed on language that meets state law and requirements.
