Urban Waterfronts: Does Every Use Have a Place?

by John M. Houlahan, NOAA, Washington, DC, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


This paper is a comparison of different state definitions and techniques used to manage competing uses on the waterfront. Every use does have a place on the waterfront. But that place differs depending on the use's degree of water dependency and the particular waterfront. In order to put each use in its proper place, the author recommends coastal managers define three categories of uses based on their degree of water dependency. These categories would then be the basis for deciding what uses are allowed in specific geographic areas.
