Comments Sought on Brewster’s Updated Shoreline Plan

A comprehensive update to regulations designed to preserve and protect shorelines within the city of Brewster is open for comment through the Washington Department of Ecology.

First adopted in 1991, the city has worked to completely update its shoreline master program to align with new state rules and current shoreline conditions.

The proposed shoreline program will guide construction and development along the Columbia River within Brewster’s jurisdiction.

The locally tailored shoreline program will help minimize environmental damage to shoreline areas, reserve appropriate areas for water-oriented uses and protect people’s access to public land and waters.

It combines local plans for future development and preservation with new development ordinances and related permitting requirements.

The city adopted its updated shoreline plan last November and then submitted it to Ecology. Before approving, Ecology will take public comments into consideration. Once approved, the local shoreline program will become part of the overall state shoreline master program.

Comments will be accepted through October 14, 2016.
