Executive Summary for Section 2: Planning for Coastal Resources
The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (WCMP) was established to help coastal communities manage the state's shorelines along Green Bay, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. Wisconsin's coastal counties include Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, Iron, Marinette, Oconto, Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha.
Ideally, coastal management should strike a balance between development and natural resource protection in both urban and rural Wisconsin communities. Section 2 of the "Guide to Planning for Coastal Communities in Wisconsin" discusses: 1) the creation of a coastal planning team to address coastal issues within a community's Comprehensive Plan; 2) the development of an overall vision for a community's coastal resources; and 3) the conduction of an inventory and assessment of coastal resources to aid this process.
