[ARCHIVED] Shoreline Master Program Review & Public Hearing

The Mountlake Terrace City Council will review the Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Periodic Update at its work/study session Thursday, June 13, 2019. A public hearing and adoption of a Resolution of Intent to Approve will take place on Monday, June 17, 2019. Both meetings will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Mountlake Terrace Interim City Hall Council Chambers, 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 220.

The city is required to conduct a periodic assessment of the plan and modify, if necessary, to assure consistency with changes in state law and city codes since the last update. The SMP was last amended in 2013. This update is to be completed by June 30, 2019, and at least every eight years thereafter. Only minor amendments are anticipated.

The Shoreline Management Act regulates designated shorelines to achieve “no net loss of ecological functions” on, and abutting these areas. Lake Ballinger is the only designated shoreline in Mountlake Terrace and encompasses the portion of the lake within the city limits, Ballinger Island, the first 200 feet landward of the lake’s ordinary high water mark, and associated floodplains and wetland areas. More information is available at

If you are unable to attend the meeting, written comments will be accepted until June 17, 2019 at 4:00 p.m., to the attention of the City Clerk, 6100 219th Street SW, Suite 200, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 or via email:, and will become part of the permanent record. For more information contact (425) 744-6207.
