Shoreline Master Program Update
Cowlitz County Shoreline Master Program Update


Current Status: 
    In the summer of 2015 the WA Department of Ecology's grant funded project expired. Since that time Cowlitz County has continued to work with our consultant, Parametrix, to complete the required Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update. Also in 2015 we were notified by the WA Department of Commerce that a periodic update of the Cowlitz County Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO) would be required by mid-2017. The CAO update fits into the SMP update; in the interest of consistency the decision was made to complete the CAO update process within the SMP update. Therefore, the schedule has been modified to meet that goal.
