Summary

The Shoreline Armoring Implementation Strategy describes the regional outcomes necessary to accelerate progress towards the Vital Sign indicator target. It is a road map for aligning opportunities across agencies, programs, projects, and funding and to highlight the areas requiring the most attention in order to sustain and accelerate the progress achieved to-date. This Implementation Strategy identifies four strategies: incentives; regulatory; design and technical training; and planning. Enactment of this Implementation Strategy should increase the health of Puget Sound shores while ensuring people and their property are safe and able to continue enjoying Puget Sound beaches.
