Redmond Shoreline Master Program Periodic Update “Office Hours”

Redmond, WA – On December 4, 2018, the City is holding an “Office Hours” event to share information and answer questions regarding its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Periodic Update. This event will be held in the Alpha and Bravo Conference Rooms on the first floor of Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th Street, Redmond from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm. 

State law requires jurisdictions to update their Shoreline Master Programs every eight years. Redmond’s Program is due for adoption by June 2019. This review ensures the City’s SMP stays current with changes in laws and rules, remains consistent with other Redmond plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information, and improved data. 

Properties affected by Redmond’s Shoreline Master Program generally include lands within 200 feet of Lake Sammamish, the Sammamish River, Bear Creek, and Evans Creek. SMP’s act as an overlay to underlying land use and zoning. Note this update does not change the existing shoreline jurisdiction.

Over the next six months, this update will go before the Redmond Planning Commission for a public hearing, deliberations, and a recommendation to the City Council for their review and decision.
