City of Pateros Shoreline Master Program Update
The City of Pateros is conducting a periodic update of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) as required by state law. The SMP applies to all lakes over 20 acres, and larger streams (over 20 cubic feet per second) as well as associated wetlands and uplands at least 200 feet on a horizontal plane from the Ordinary-High-Water-Mark of the shoreline. The Columbia River, Methow River, [MOU1] Wells Pool (aka Lake Pateros) and any associated wetlands are within the jurisdiction of the SMP. This project will focus on updating policies and regulations to ensure consistency with current state law. Please help guide this project by providing your input to the following questions. Skip any that do not apply to you.
