SDCI is proposing to amend the Shoreline Master Program (SMP) to increase the consistency of the use of terms in the code. The amendments would add additional language to the definition of vessel to clarify that the intent of the term “designed for navigation” is to transport people or goods over water. Additionally, the proposed amendments would add language to clarify what “used for navigation” means by including the term “capable of being used for navigation.” The term “capable of being used for navigation” would clarify that the use of the vessel isn’t dependent on the current owner of the vessel or the current condition of the vessel.
