17.11.010 Introduction.

The Pend Oreille River is the only body of water within the city of Newport that is under the jurisdiction of the Washington State Shoreline Management Act and there are only two parcels within the city that contain jurisdictional shorelines: the city sewage treatment plant and an island owned by the city. No other public or privately owned property within the city appears to contain jurisdictional shorelines, although there are approximately four parcels within the city’s urban growth area that may contain jurisdictional shorelines. (Ord. 2104 § 1 (Exh. A), 2022)

17.11.020 Shoreline master program.

The city hereby adopts the Pend Oreille County development regulations, Chapter XX.34, Shoreline Regulations, as it now exists and as subsequently amended, to preserve and protect jurisdictional shorelines within the city and the city’s urban growth area. (Ord. 2104 § 1 (Exh. A), 2022)

17.11.030 Future annexations.

In the event that a future annexation contains jurisdictional shorelines designated by Pend Oreille County, such lands shall retain their county shoreline environment designation and protections afforded through the county shoreline master program, until such time that the property is redesignated and/or a new shoreline master program or shoreline regulations that supersede the county shoreline master program and shoreline regulations are adopted by the city. (Ord. 2104 § 1 (Exh. A), 2022)
