Coastal Management Committee Formed

BARNSTABLE – The Barnstable County Coastal Management Committee was established by the Board of Regional Commissioners to provide guidance on the protection, preservation, and use of Cape Cod’s coastal resource areas.

The group recently held its first meeting.

It’s made up of regional government, nonprofit and state agencies and has a broad charge of focus including coastal resilience, fin and shellfish resources and habitats, education and outreach, dredging, regional sediment management, and marine and estuarine water quality.

The committee will work to identify regional coastal priorities that meet the needs and benefit the environment and economy.

It will be a collaborative effort and subcommittees will also be formed as needed to tackle the complexities of coastal management.
