Shoreline planners to host upcoming open house meetings

Town Crier

Lewis County and the cities of Chehalis, Centralia, Winlock, and Morton are part of the Lewis County Coalition, which is in the early stages of cooperatively updating their Shoreline Master Programs (SMPs).

The Coalition is working to ensure a regional approach to shoreline management. We encourage the active participation in the SMP update by all persons, private organizations, public agencies, and tribes that have an interest in the Coalition’s shorelines of the state. We want you to be involved in the update. Public open houses and visioning workshops for the County, Morton, and Winlock are scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the Veterans Memorial Museum (100 SW Veterans Way, Chehalis) and Tuesday, Oct. 1, in Randle at White Pass HS (516 Silverbrook Rd.) Both events start at 6 p.m.

Please visit the Lewis County Coalition’s website for current information on the update, who to contact, how to be involved, and documents to download and review. The Coalition website is at:
