Shoreline Master Program Periodic Review
Jefferson County is undertaking a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (Chapter 18.25 Jefferson County Code), as required by the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58.080(4). The SMA requires each SMP be reviewed and revised, if needed, on an eight-year schedule established by the Legislature. The review ensures the SMP stays current with changes in laws and rules, remains consistent with other Jefferson County plans and regulations, and is responsive to changed circumstances, new information and improved data.

Flood Development and Protection Information
Jefferson County is adjacent to Hood Canal, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Pacific Ocean as well as a number of large rivers and streams. Many of the waterbodies in Jefferson County are mapped as floodplain by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Activities proposed within mapped floodplains must comply with development provisions in the flood damage prevention ordinance. In addition, information is available that will help protect you and your property from flood damage.
