The Harbor Plan Committee has met monthly from November, 2012 to June, 2014 in the development of the 2014 Harbor Plan.
The initial six months of meetings included:
A review of the 2009 Plan and its recommendations
Presentation of outcomes from the 2009 Plan
Meetings with the Fisheries Commission, the Waterways Board, and
the Maritime Economy Working Partnership
Briefing from Coastal Zone Management on the Designated Port Area regulations
Briefing from Coastal Zone Management on the Municipal Harbor Plan process
Briefing from the Harbor Planning Director on proposed scope for Plan.
The scope for the 2014 HP is the development of an economic strategic plan, accompanied by a proposed regulatory and institutional framework that will support reinvestment in waterfront properties.
In August 2013, a consultant team led by Ninigret Partners, in partnership with utile and Durand & Anastas, was selected to accomplish these objectives.
