Notice of Joint Local-State Public Comment Period, SEPA Environmental Review, and Public Hearing: Moses Lake Shoreline Master Program 2023 Periodic Review NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Moses Lake and Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) are seeking comments on the City’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) periodic review and proposed SMP Amendments. The joint 30-day local/state public comment period will run from January 16, 2023 through February 16, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. Authority for the periodic Review is based on Washington’s Shoreline Management Act (Ch. 90.58 RCW) and related rules. These amendments were developed by Moses Lake City to comply with WAC 173-26-090, which requires all local governments to review their SMPs on an eight-year schedule set in state law and revise it if necessary. The review ensures the SMP keeps up with changes in state law, changes in other City 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. No additional comment period will occur during the state review process. Comments provided to the city will be reviewed by both the City and Ecology. There is no need to send comments directly to Ecology. Comments may be submitted to project consultant Rachel Granrath at rachel.granrath@scjalliance.com, or to Michelene Torrey, MTorrey@CityofML.com, Planning Permit Technician, or mailed to Moses Lake Community Development Department at 321 S Balsam Street, P.O. Box 1579, Moses Lake, WA 98837 Comments may also be at the public hearing noted below. At the conclusion of the comment period, the city will prepare a response to comments and determine whether changes are needed. Public comments and City responses will be shared with Ecology. After local adoption, the SMP amendment will be formally submitted to Ecology for final action per WAC 173-26-104 and WAC 173-26-110. Ecology will review amendments for consistency with state laws and rules. Ecology may either approve the program as adopted or may recommend changes. Environmental Documents: This proposed amendment is considered a non-project action and an Environmental Checklist has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the State Environmental Policy Act. The lead agency for this notice, Moses Lake Community Development Department, intends to issue a SEPA DNS under WAC 197-11-340(2). The SEPA notification will be published and circulated separately and will also be available at the below City SMP Periodic Update webpage. Documents related to this proposal are available for review at: https://www.moseslakesmp.com/  A hybrid Public Hearing is to be held by the Moses Lake City Planning Commission on February 16 2023, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting location is at Council Chambers 401 S Balsam St., Moses Lake, WA.
