Learn about shoreline and critical areas updates at an open house on October 9, 2018.

Under Washington State’s Shoreline Management Act there are specific rules for activities and development within 200 feet of the Green River. Tukwila is conducting a periodic review of its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) to ensure that it is current with changes in law and is consistent with other Tukwila plans and regulations. We are also making some required changes to our rules for critical areas such as wetlands, streams and steep slopes to reflect best available science.
