If it is a State permit, why don’t I get a permit from the State?
Local governments are in charge of shoreline planning, under state guidance each county and city with shorelines has adopted a Shoreline Master Program containing the local rules for shorelines. Each Shoreline Master Program was reviewed and approved by the Washington State Department of Ecology before it took effect. So the State provides the guidance, and cities and counties administer the permits.
