The City of Tenino and Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) are seeking comments to the City’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) periodic review and proposed SMP amendments. The joint local/state public comment period will run 30 days from February 5, 2021, 5:00pm. These amendments were developed by the City to comply with WAC 173-26-090, which requires all local governments to review their SMP’s on an eight-year schedule set in the state law and revise if necessary. The review ensures the SMP keeps up with changes in state laws, changes in other local jurisdictions’ plans and regulations, and other changed circumstances. The City has elected to use the optional joint review process to combine the local and Ecology comment periods, as allowed under WAC 173-26-104.  Comments may be submitted to: Project lead Rachel Granrath, rache.granrath [at] Comments may also be mailed to City of Tenino at 149 Hodgden Street South, PO Box 4019, Tenino, WA 98589 or phone calls will be received at (360)264-2368 during office hours 8:00am-4:00pm.  Comments can also be made by participating in the virtual public hearing noted below. Joint Public Hearing is to be held March 10, 2021 at 6:00pm. Due to Washington Governor Inslee’s orders for the COVID-19 pandemic, the hearing will be held virtually over GoToMeeting.  Hearing date is subject to change and can be confirmed on the Tenino Planning Commission Agenda website. When Planning Commission meetings are conducted remotely, you can access the room here. Comments are due by March 8, 2021 at 5:00pm.
