Recent, widespread shifts in coastal land ownership and uses are bringing about changes in the traditional patterns of coastal access in Maine. These changes have important impacts on water-dependant industries as well as recreational and private property users.
Goal: sharing perceived problems; finding common ground; sharing resources and tools; developing cooperative, collaborative, and mutually-beneficial solutions in Downeast Maine.
Organized by: a planning committee representing: University of Maine Sea Grant / Cooperative Extension, University of Maine at Machias, Island Institute, Sunrise County Economic Council, Maine Coastal Program, Maine Sea Coast Mission, Washington County Council of Governments, and Coastal Enterprises Inc.
