Shoreline Master Program Update
Mason County is updating its Shoreline Master Program (SMP), which regulates land use and development within 200 feet from rivers, lakes, and marine shores. Mason County has over 709 miles of shoreline that are protected by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA) and by the Mason County SMP.

After the workshops, the draft will be revised to include the changes recommended by the Planning Advisory Commission (PAC), one or more public hearings will be held, and they will make a final recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners.

The Public is invited to attend the PAC Workshops, which are at 6:00 PM at 411 N 5th St, Shelton.
