King County Shoreline Rules Revisions

From the email inbox:

King County needs your help as we begin the review of our program for managing the shorelines of marine areas, lakes and streams in unincorporated areas. King County is in the first stages of updating its Shoreline Master Program, a set of policies and regulations that determines how major shorelines are managed.

You are receiving this message because of your past interest in King County's public processes. We'd like your feedback on existing shoreline conditions, the rules that protect them and future goals.

You will not receive another message about this public process, unless you choose to receive additional information. If you would like to subscribe to e-mail notices about the King County Shorelines Update, send an e-mail message to with the words "Subscribe KCShorelinesUpdate Your Name" in the body of the message (not the subject line).

Learn more:
- Visit the King County Shorelines Web site to see a draft inventory and analysis of existing shoreline conditions and additional information and submit your comments. (The Draft King County Shorelines Technical Appendix, a report describing existing shorelines conditions, will also be made available in public libraries.)
- Attend an upcoming Open House near you (dates below) to see a draft inventory and analysis of existing shoreline conditions, learn more about shoreline management and get answers to questions you may have.
