Shorelines

​If you own waterfront property in unincorporated Thurston County, current shoreline codes are in the 1990 Shoreline Master Program (SMP), which spells out allowable land uses and zoning. The current SMP code was adopted in 1990. An update to the code is now underway, and the public comment period is open. There is currently no deadline for submitting comments.
