Coastal Project Solution, Conservancy-Style

by Peter Grenell, State Coastal Conservancy, Oakland, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


During the past decade, the California State Coastal Conservancy has evolved a successful approach to resolving coastal land use conflicts through its many coastal projects. This non-regulatory, non-confrontational method has broad application as a complement to regulatory and other mechanisms for protecting and developing coastal resources. It is presently being adapted or considered elsewhere in the country, including New Jersey, Florida, New York, and Washington. The Coastal Conservancy has fostered public and private sector collaboration, leveraged limited public funds through creative financing methods, supported active participation of nonprofit organizations and the general public in designing and implementing projects, and has secured project solutions without compromising the concerned coastal resources.
