Review of draft shoreline regulations continues

Bellevue councilmembers continued their review of a draft Shoreline Management Program update on June 23. It was the seventh meeting at which the council considered the draft, including several in-depth policy discussion on issues identified as important to the Planning Commission and council.

Discussion topics concerned provisions on critical areas, moorage and shoreline stabilization.

The next council session to consider the update is scheduled for July 14. More information on the plan is available online (
