Preliminary Shoreline Analysis Report

The Shoreline Analysis Report provides a planning level of analysis to understand existing environmental and built conditions and used to translate those findings into SMP policies and regulations for those uses and modifications that are under the jurisdiction of the SMP.


Shoreline Inventory Map Folio

The Shoreline Inventory Map Folio displays available map information that could be readily gathered from local, state, federal and other sources.  The map folio is subject to change, and the County welcomes your feedback and additional information.  The map folio is being used to develop the analysis of shoreline ecological functions, land use and public access.  The map folio and the analysis report will support County efforts to update the Shoreline Master Program based on these local conditions.
