Shoreline Master Program
The Shoreline Management Act (SMA) was enacted by the Legislature in 1971 and the county adopted a Shoreline Master Program (SMP) in 1974. The county last completed a comprehensive SMP update in 2012. The Growth Management Act states that the goals and policies of the SMA are considered a fourteenth goal for purposes of the Act and the comprehensive plan.
Shoreline goals and policies are included in the Clark County Comprehensive Plan as Chapter 13.
Shoreline use regulations are included in Clark County Code, Chapter 40.460.
2018 SMP Amendment
In 2018, an amendment is being proposed to the SMP chapter of the Clark County Code. More information is available via the following links:
