As development and waterfront privatization sweeps its way up the coast of Maine, decision-makers and their local constituencies grapple with waterfront use and access issues. Water-dependent industries, ranging from traditional fisheries to recreational businesses, as well as the public at large, are all facing decreasing access to the ocean. This signals an important change in our coastal heritage. Municipal officials, water-dependent industries, and residents have all identified the need for outreach and assistance to help maintain the character of, and access to, Maine's waterfront areas for diverse users while creating a growth-friendly climate.
