(BELLINGHAM)– The Washington State Department of Ecology is seeking public comment on the city of Burlington’s recently updated Shoreline Master Program.
Ecology officials say the updated master program guides construction and development in the city’s roughly three miles of Skagit River shoreline.
It combines local plans for future development and preservation with new development ordinances and related permitting requirements.
Under Washington’s voter-approved Shoreline Management Act, Ecology must review and approve Burlington’s program before it takes effect.
Ecology will accept public comment on Burlington’s shoreline program through March 15th.
