Kitsap County is completing a required periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The SMP, as guided by state law, is a comprehensive plan that guides the development, conservation, and restoration of Kitsap County's shoreline. The purpose and scope of the 2020-2021 SMP periodic review is to:

  • Ensure consistency of the SMP with applicable state laws and guidelines in effect at the time of the review;
  • Ensure consistency of the SMP with the County's comprehensive plan and development regulations; and
  • Provide clarifications to improve the usability and predictability of the SMP for permit applicants and reviewers.


Meeting to Adopt Proposed Ordinance
The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners will meet on June 28, 2021, beginning at 5:30 P.M. to decide on an ordinance locally adopting Kitsap County's Shoreline Master Program, Title 22 Kitsap County Code amending provisions of Titles 19 Critical Areas Ordinance and 21 Land Use & Development Procedures. Following local adoption, the SMP will be forwarded to the Washington State Department of Ecology for review and final action in accordance with WAC 173-26-110.

The public may link into the meeting through video conference or telephonically through a call-in number. Meeting access link information, as well as related materials, will be available on the SMP project webpage and on the Board of County Commissioners Meeting Agendas link.
