Coulee Dam’s council gave Mayor Greg Wilder authority to sign an agreement with a Wenatchee firm, SCJ Alliance, to update the town’s Shoreline Master Plan.
The project is funded by the state and will keep the town in compliance with the 1971 Shoreline Management Act.
The firm, SCJ Alliance, is also developing the shoreline plans for Grand Coulee and Electric City.
The agreement with SCJ is for $47,720, for professional services and $2,280, for town expenses/costs, all reimbursable by the state.
Wilder stated, that while the update of the town’s Shoreline Plan is a routine matter, and according to law must be done, it affords citizens and town government to participate and make contributions to the plan.
The Shoreline Act manages shoreline development and applies to most streams, lakes greater than 20 acres, and marine waters and associated shorelands, wetlands and floodplains.
