Part of: Coastal Zone '87


To implement their Coastal Zone Management and Local Waterfront Revitalization Plans, towns and villages in the State of New York have been encouraged by the State to develop Harbor Management Plans (HMP). In January 1986, the Village of Mamaroneck, New York was the first in local government in New York State to develop and adopt an HMP. The development of this plan for the Village of Mamaroneck involved the determination of the role, responsibilities and duties of the local harbor commission. The development of this HMP for the Village of Mamaroneck is of special interest to the discussion of Coastal and marine Policy: Institutional Relations and, in particular, the topic of interorganizational Planning and coordination. The role developed for the Harbor Commission was developed through its interaction with the various levels of government in their mutual quest to control waterside development.
