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. You may submit a comment by clicking here.
Current Project Status: The Thurston County Planning Commission is currently reviewing draft chapters and other materials for the SMP update. A virtual open house is planned for launch in September 2020. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the SMP update later in the fall.
