Connecticut Legislature passed an Act concerning harbor management which enables coastal communities to establish harbor management committees and prepare harbor management plans. This was a result of a cooperative effort between the Corps of Engineers, Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, several coastal communities in Connecticut, and the Connecticut Legislature. This paper discusses some of the background which led to the legislation, some of its important provisions, the opportunities they create, and its implementation to date in Connecticut.
