Shoreline Master Plan Periodic Update 2021


Benton County is undertaking a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58.080(4). The SMA requires each SMP be reviewed and revised, if needed, on an eight-year schedule established by the Legislature. The review ensures the SMP stays current with changes in laws and rules, remains consistent with other county plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information and improved data.

Public Participation Plan  - The Benton County Public Participation Plan (PPP) includes guidelines and procedures for early and continuous public participation, and opportunities for input and comment related to the review and update of the County’s Shoreline Master Plan as well as County contact information and web address. This plan is a working document and will be adjusted as needed to provide for the greatest and broadest public participation. This work is funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology).
