  • State Approves Douglas County Shoreline Rules Changes
    Posted From Dept. of Ecology news Release on Friday 2/27/15   WATERVILLE – The Washington Department of Ecology has approved a revision to Douglas County’s shoreline master program, modifying regulations related to building setbacks and visual access to the shoreline.   The approved changes are based on experience gained implementing the county’s existing shoreline plan, which was comprehensively updated in 2009.   A separate amendment proposed by the county eliminating boat mooring standards was not approved. Existing mooring standards will remain in place.   The locally tailored shoreline program is designed to help minimize environmental damage to shoreline areas, reserve appropriate areas for water-oriented uses and protect people’s access to public land and waters.   The revised shoreline program goes into effect March 4, 2015. Appeals may be filed with the Growth Management Hearings Board within 60 days of a legal advertisement published March 5, 2015, in the Douglas County Empire Press.
