Shoreline Management Plan Review and Update 2019

This 2019 SMP is a result of the required FERC order issued in 2013 approving the SMP to undergo a
six year review and update. The goal of this SMP review is to clarify the procedures, guidelines, and
standards for management of lands within the Project Boundary to ensure protection of existing and
future natural resources, and aesthetic and environmental values at the Project. The intent of the
proposed updates to the Shoreline Land Designation mapping and definitions, as well as the addition
of Shoreline Permit Guidelines, is to clearly define acceptable current and future shoreline and land
uses at the Project. Additionally the proposed updates seek to provide standards for those uses and
activities and to simplify and define the procedures and processes for FirstLight’s authorization of such
uses and associated activities.
