Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update

A Shoreline Master Program Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Report is the foundation for the Shoreline Master Program (SMP) and is developed using a scientific approach.

The Shoreline Inventory and Characterization serves as a snapshot of current conditions and provides a baseline for tracking the "no net loss of ecological functions" provision required by Ecology's SMP Guidelines.  Together, the inventory and characterization lead to an understanding of the relationship between shoreline processes and functions and the built environment.

The Shoreline Inventory and Characterization identifies and assesses:  existing information on watershed and shoreline attributes; current shoreline conditions and development patterns; ecosystem-wide processes and shoreline functions; opportunities for restoration; public access; and shoreline use.  Developing the inventory and characterization helps to identify solutions to shoreline issues and guides the development of shoreline designations, policies, and development standards that achieve no net loss of shoreline ecological functions.

Below are TWO draft Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Reports.  The Clallam County WRIA 17-19 Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Report covers the Clallam County watersheds that drain into the Strait of Juan de Fuca (Water Resource Inventory Areas are called WRIA´s).  Clallam County WRIA 20 Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Report covers Clallam County watersheds that drain into the Pacific Ocean.

These Draft Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Reports are intended to provide information for the update of the Clallam County Shoreline Master Program.  The Report and Maps are provided below in and their entirety as well as in separate documents.
