Summary

The short-term goal of this project was to provide the foundation for further development of existing ports by completing an inventory of port and community assets, as well as identifying opportunities and constraints, strategies for future activities, and opportunities for regional collaboration. Examples of inventoried assets included: land use, zoning, ownership, existing facilities, uses and ownership, ferry service, environmental issues (e.g. brownfields), commercial businesses, industrial businesses and others. The long-term goal was to expand opportunities for commerce and recreation at the port.
