Inter-municipal Shoreline Management Plan and Geodatabase

The characteristics that make shorelines resilient operate independently of municipal boundaries. Four adjacent Cape Cod communities, Eastham, Truro, Provincetown and Wellfleet, have partnered with CCS to develop a framework for an inter-municipal approach to shoreline management to promote science-based decisions that will maximize the effectiveness of community response to the increased threat of coastal hazards. An Inter-municipal Shoreline Management Geodatabase has been created to examine contemporary shoreline resilience conditions and characterize the four-town shoreline in the absence of municipal boundaries. Future phases of this project will further refine and implement the principles of the inter-municipal shoreline management framework.
