Ecology seeking public comment on Port Orchard’s shoreline amendments

OLYMPIA — The state Department of Ecology is seeking public comment on amendments proposed by the City of Port Orchard to its Shoreline Master Program (SMP).

The city proposes to add more specific guidance for redevelopment and modify sections on non-conforming uses and public access.

The Department of Ecology, which reviews local SMPs under the state’s Shoreline Management Act, will decide whether to approve this limited amendment after the proposal’s public comment period closes on Feb. 2.

Information about the proposed amendment is available at www.ecy.wa.gov and at the department’s regional office at 3190 160th Ave. SE, Bellevue, WA 98008 by appointment. The phone number is 425-649-7000.

If you have comments to share, send them to Misty.Blair@ecy.wa.gov or to Misty Blair, shoreline planner, at the regional office’s address.
