Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan- Volume 1 Management and Administration

Source/Sponsor: 
Massachusetts Legislature
Creator/Author: 
Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA)
Description: 

The main purpose of the Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan is to translate the policy direction and specific requirements of the Oceans Act into a comprehensive management approach that can be implemented through existing state programs and regulations. Volume 1 identifies use areas and special, sensitive, and unique areas for protection. It also presents the comprehensive management measures that will be implemented. Two Wind Energy Areas (constituting 2,144.5 square miles) are designated for commercial-scale wind energy facilities based on the presence of a suitable wind resource and water depth, and the absence of conflict with other uses or sensitive resources, as derived through an environmental screening process. In addition, Volume I describes how the ocean management plan will be administered, including sections on mitigation measures and the Trust Fund, agency implementation of the plan, the ongoing planning structure, the plan modification process, proposed regulatory changes, and the interaction between the Ocean Sanctuaries Act and the plan.
