Shoreline Master Program Update


The Shoreline Master Program (SMP) is a system of regulations designed to protect shoreline of statewide significance. In Sultan this includes the Sultan, Skykomish, and part of the Wallace Rivers. These regulations apply to any applicable activity within 200-feet of the Ordinary High-Water Mark of these bodies of water. The SMP is updated as needed with the last update occurring in 2019.

On July 19, 2019, Staff completed the final changes to the Shoreline Master Plan (SMP).  The full text of the SMP and Map are linked below.
