The City of Camas is undertaking a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58.080(4). The city’s current plan was amended in whole in 2012, with limited amendments adopted in 2009 and 2015.
The state requires each SMP be reviewed and revised, if needed, on an eight-year schedule. The review ensures the SMP stays current with changes in laws and rules, remains consistent with other City plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information and improved data.
The City welcomes and encourages early and continuous public participation throughout the process of reviewing the SMP. A draft public participation plan is available at this link: Draft Public Participation Plan. An ad hoc committee of volunteers [aka Shoreline Technical Advisory Committee] will begin meeting and reviewing initial draft changes on the following days and times:
- October 30, 2019 (4:00 – 5:30 p.m.) at City Hall in the Council Chambers, 616 NE 4th Avenue, Camas
- December 4, 2019 (3:00 – 4:30 p.m.) at Cake Happy, 340 NE 4th Avenue, Camas
The meetings are open to the public for those that are interested in joining us. However, the meetings are not public hearings.
Please check back in early December for a detailed schedule to replace the following draft:
