SMP Update 2021

The City of Bremerton is undertaking a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act. The City adopted its current SMP in 2012 with limited amendments in 2016. The focus of this periodic review is on consistency with changes to state law made since its adoption. The review will also address consistency with the City’s comprehensive plan and development regulations, and overall usability of the SMP. 

The City plans to kick off the update with an on-line open house in early 2020. Public meetings will occur later in 2020, with a goal to adopt the updated SMP before June 2021.
