The Island County SMP consists of both a policy plan and development regulations that apply to areas within shoreline jurisdiction (200-feet upland of Ordinary High Water Mark including lakes larger than 20-acres in size).
 
Shoreline uses are identified as either permitted, conditional, or prohibited uses depending on the shoreline environment designation. This designation is essentially shoreline zoning that is based on an inventory of existing uses. In general, projects within the shoreline jurisdiction are reviewed by staff to ensure compliance with the development standards listed in the SMP chapter 17.05 ICC.  Regulations for development activities within a shoreline jurisdiction are located in ICC 16.21 Shoreline Management.
