Mason County Shoreline Program Online

The public is invited to review Mason County’s recently updated shoreline program that details how they plan to manage and protect 697 miles of marine, river and lake shorelines.

The Washington Department of Ecology has just made the plan available for review and comment through June 21.

Mason County’s comprehensive update completely replaces its original shoreline master program, which was first adopted in 1975.

The new plan contains locally tailored policies and provisions to protect habitat and encourage restoration of shorelines on water bodies such as Hood Canal, Lake Cushman and a number of rivers and streams.

Local shoreline programs protect natural resources for future generations, provide for public access to public waters, and plan for shoreline uses and development. Once approved by Ecology, they become part of the state’s overall Shoreline Master Program as outlined in the Shoreline Management Act.

Mason County’s updated Shoreline Management Program can be reviewed online.
