Chelan County Shoreline Master Program (SMP)
Washington's Shoreline Management Act strives to achieve responsible shoreline use and development, environmental protection, and public access. Local governments develop a Shoreline Master Program (SMP) based on the Act and state guidance. Working as a sub-consultant to The Watershed Company, CORE GIS serves as the GIS lead on the Chelan County SMP, which encompasses the unincorporated County and all five of the incorporated cities: Wenatchee, Chelan, Entiat, Leavenworth, and Cashmere. CORE GIS was responsible for gathering, synthesizing, and analyzing data from a wide range of sources. We mapped the initial jurisdiction and subsequent edits, conducted all of the analyses to date, and designed and produced all of the cartography.
