Abstract: This proceedings, Marinas, Parks & Recreation Developments, contains papers presented at the International Conference sponsored by ASCE's Ports and Harbors Committee, Marinas 2000 Task Committee, and Parks and Recreation Planning Committee held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June 26-30, 1994. The conference objective was to bring together engineers, planners, landscape architects, and other participants essential to building facilities needed by a growing world population, with ever increasing demands for spending quality leisure time. The increased role of public and special interest groups, regarding the environment, government spending, and closer scrutiny of corporate investments have made project planning all the more important and complex. The papers in this proceedings reflect these concerns and provide practical state-of-the-art approaches towards solving impending problems of the 21st Century. Such topics as public involvement in decision making; intergovernmental cooperation; partnerships to provide planning, environmental and engineering issues are discussed. In addition, many case studies from around the world are included.
