Shoreline Environment Designations

The University Place SMP Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) has recommended preliminary shoreline environment designations (SED) for specific stream and marine shoreline reaches based on the findings from the Final Shoreline Inventory and Characterization Report, and the SED purpose and criteria in State shoreline guidelines. The recommendations reflect existing land use patterns, anticipated future land uses based on zoning and the City's Comprehensive Plan, and the biological and physical characteristics of the shoreline reaches. The following SEDs have been adopted by the City Council pursuant to Resolution No. 736:

  • Natural
  • Urban Conservancy
  • Shoreline Residential
  • Day Island Medium Intensity
  • Marine Deepwater
