2016 Maritime Gloucester Talks kicks off with a panel discussion on the Massachusetts Ocean Plan, Balancing Interests while Managing “Ocean Sprawl” with presenters Bruce Carlisle, Director of Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and Jack Clarke, Director of Public Policy and Government Relations, Mass Audubon, Chairman of the Massachusetts Ocean Advisory Commission, as re-appointed by Governor Baker; and a Gloucester resident.
Massachusetts’ Ocean Plan is the landmark blueprint to protect and sustainably use state ocean waters, safeguard critical marine habitat and important water-dependent uses, and to set standards for new ocean-based development. This panel discussion will provide you with the background on how and why the plan was developed, explore the role of stakeholders and discuss its stresses—from sand and gravel mining to our Canadian neighbors exploring for gas and oil. Leaving plenty of time for your questions and group discussion.
