Shoreline Master Program

What is a Shoreline Master Program (SMP)?
Shoreline Master Program (SMP) regulates uses and development along Lake Stevens and other waters of the state - Stich Lake, Catherine Creek, and Little Pilchuck Creek - as well as their shorelands, which are defined as areas within 200 feet of the ordinary high-water mark (OHWM). The city adopted its first SMP in 2013, and completed a mandatory periodic review in 2018-2019.
