Coastal and Marine Resources

The Cape's coastal and marine resources define the region's character, culture and economy and good stewardship of these fragile resources are essential to the continued vitality of our environment.   Planning staff prepares regional and local plans to protect coastal and marine resources and to address potential development impacts to these important resources.

To address the impacts from climate change, Planning staff assists communities in the preparation of multi-hazard mitigation plans and emergency preparedness strategies for the residents and visitors to our region.
