News Release

 Shoreline Master Program Update Getting Underway

 The Town of Twisp will be initiating the public process for completing the required periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) in April, 2022. The city adopted its first SMP in 1991 after using the Okanogan County Shoreline Master Program since 1976 then prepared and adopted the current SMP following a comprehensive update in 2012.

 The Town is required to have an SMP in compliance with the Shoreline Management Act, passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor in the early 1970s. The Act requires that each county, city or town that contains a river or stream with a mean annual flow of 20 cubic feet per second or a lake greater than 20 acres in size, prepare and adopt a Shoreline Master Program. The SMP is a combination comprehensive plan and zoning code for areas under shoreline jurisdiction, that area lying 200 feet landward on a horizontal plane from the ordinary-high-water-mark or floodway boundary, whichever is greater, and any associated wetlands. Twisp has shoreline areas along the Twisp and Methow Rivers.

 Land uses within shoreline jurisdiction in the community include residential, commercial, public, industrial and undeveloped. The SMP contains permitting requirements and regulations for a variety of land uses within shoreline jurisdiction with the overall goal that the shoreline area be managed to “ensure no net loss” of shoreline functions and values. With Twisp’s shoreline areas a combination of developed and previously developed but now vacant land, the updated SMP will affect new and significant redevelopment of land within shoreline jurisdiction. Most common activities, e.g. building a single family home and appurtenant structures, remodeling within an existing structure footprint and other low impact activities under a state defined amount are exempt from permitting but do require compliance with the SMP.

 The Planning Commission, filling the role of the Shoreline Advisory Committee will hold occasional public meetings throughout 2022 and into 2023 as work on the update progresses. The Town has created a link on its Webpage,, that provides a presentation that provides background information on the Shoreline Management Act, an overview of the City’s existing SMP and the process being used for the periodic update. The website also contains a link to a community survey regarding the Shoreline Master Program. The website and survey will be going live on March 18, 2022.

 Any questions can be directed to Amy Grennell at Town Hall 509 997-4081 or Kurt Danison, Planner at 509 322 4037.
