Final Shoreline Master Program

The City of University Place has completed its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update. During 2014 to 2015 the Washington State Department of Ecology reviewed the City’s locally adopted SMP (October 21, 2013) and determined that a number of changes were needed to ensure full compliance with Shoreline Management Act and Ecology’s SMP Guidelines.

Ecology's Review & Recommendations

In response to Ecology direction, the City Council adopted a revised SMP (PDF), which incorporated all required and recommended changes, pursuant to Ordinance No. 652, on March 16, 2015. 

Ecology announced its final approval of the City's SMP on April 3, 2015.
