      Seattle’s Shoreline Rules
      Are Changing

      Join us for a discussion about what the new rules mean for you.

      Olympic Sculpture Park

      Will the new shoreline rules affect you?  They could if you’re a waterfront homeowner or business owner, live on a boat, or play along Seattle’s shorelines.  The Seattle Department of Planning and Development is hosting a public meeting to discuss the changes and answer your questions.  We hope to see you there.

      March 8, 2011
      5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
      Presentation starts at 6:00 p.m.
      Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room
      600 4th Avenue, 5th Avenue level

      What you need to know:

      Highlighted proposed changes that might affect you include:

      • Increasing shoreline setbacks for new residential development
      • Changing requirements for new and replaced bulkheads, unless water threatens to undermine buildings
      • Clarifying the use of shorelines to support businesses
      • Improving public access to shorelines
      • Prohibiting additional, new floating homes
      • Continuing current regulations that maintain existing floating homes
      • Regulating the number of liveaboards at marinas

      Draft regulations and supporting materials

      Detailed information about proposed regulation changes is available at:
