Members of the Moses Lake Watershed Council (MLWC) are excited to engage in the City of Moses Lake's Shoreline Master Program Update process. As an interested citizen, we think you might want to get involved too! The City's kick off meeting is coming up on Thursday, February 24th at 6:00 pm in the Civic Center Council Chambers, located at 401 S. Balsam St., Moses Lake. See details below.
The following news flash was provided by the City of Moses Lake, one of MLWC's members, and can be found on their website here.
Moses Lake residents and shoreline land owners are an important part of the lake’s water quality and the community’s well-being. Activities on the shoreline, such as repairing and adding docks, and removing or cutting plants, are among the items that require permitting. The permitting process is included in the Shoreline Master Program (SMP), which is being updated this year.
The City’s Planning Commission is hosting the SMP Update kick-off Open House starting at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 24, in the Civic Center Council Chambers, located at 401 S. Balsam St., Moses Lake.
The Shoreline Master Program periodic update is intended to bring Moses Lake into conformance with local, state and federal regulations, and policies. The City is undertaking a process that also amends the master program for usability, streamlined processes, and modernizing the maps. The purpose of this Open House is to educate the public on the shoreline regulations, processes, and data to support protecting and enhancing Moses Lake’s shoreline.
