Coastal Zone Management

The The Department of Planning and Economic Development is in the process of developing a Coastal Zone Management Plan. (See Pull and Save)

A Statewide Citizen's Forum comprised of representatives' of Seven County Committees and 45 statewide organizations, including LWV, has an advisory role to DPED. The CZM Plan must be ready to present to the next legislature in order to meet federal requirements, Because of this deadline, the Citizen's Form is trying to fill some perceived gaps and speed the process.

The Management Survey Task Force will attempt to identify problems which may be hampering the implementation or enforcement of existing measures which effect the coastal zone. Lack of funding for enforcement is often the canoe of failure of current laws and ordinances to do their designated job. The Federal bill not only provides funds for the planning process, but also for the implementation. To help identify ways in which this funding will improve enforcement of the State's plan; the Task Force was set up0lhe following areas have been suggested for surveys: 1. Water quality, 2. Grading ordinances, 3.Regulation, 4. and Governing the Uses Of Land in Conservation Districts, 4. Parks and Public Access, 5.Governmental Processes for granting permits. Sea Grant Bulletin

Any examples of violations in the above areas (pictures, items, etc.) should be sent to Dorothy Marsh who will bring it to the Task Force's attention.
