The Shoreline Master Program (SMP) is the City’s official document to guide development along the Spokane River and Shelly Lake. Finalized in 2015, the SMP includes goals and polices which are adopted by reference in the Comprehensive Plan and regulations related to shoreline development that can be found in the Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) Chapter 21.50. The shoreline jurisdiction and environmental designations can be viewed through our interactive online maps.
Other supporting documents of the SMP: Inventory and Characterization Report; No Net Loss Report; Cumulative Impacts Analysis; Restoration Plan; and Public Access plan are not included in the SMP. These documents can be found on the Washington State Department of Ecology’s website for the City of Spokane Valley Shoreline Master Program.
