Shoreline Master Program Update

City Council will vote on Seattle’s Shoreline Master Program update in April. The program protects water-dependent activities and shoreline habitat, and provides for public access. The last comprehensive update of the Shoreline Master Program was in 1987. The anticipated effective date of the new regulations will be in May 2015. One of the changes to the Shoreline Master Program requires owners of floating residences to record their residence with the City.

DPD will be launching a website that will provide information on how to record floating residences. Look for more information regarding the Shoreline Master Program update in May’s edition of dpdINFO.
