Abstract: Management plans for unique and irreplaceable coastal resources are now common in coastal planning. However, plan and program implementation are still rarely achieved. All too often plans prepared by state-wide coastal agencies are not effectively implemented because an essential partner in coastal planning and regulation, local government, has not played a meaningful role in the planning process. In Richardson Bay, part of the San Francisco Bay system, a partnership was formed between the state San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and five local governments, a county and four cities, which share planning and regulatory authority over this important natural resource. Joining together, these agencies developed a unified plan and program for the future use and management of Richardson Bay and its shoreline.
