Middlesex County seeks Public thoughts on Public Access to Water
Updated January 4, 2016 by Glenn Nix
Middlesex County, in partnership with the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority and the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission, is interested in improving understanding about public access needs and waterfront conflicts occurring along the shorelines of Middlesex County. More specifically Middlesex County wants to capture public perspective and experience on a variety of topics, including how the public accesses public lands, beaches and waterways; waterfront conflicts that have been experienced; working waterfront infrastructure problems; and suggestions about how to enhance access to the waters from Middlesex County. Therefore a “Coastal Access Survey” has been designed to gather this information.
Middlesex County will use survey responses to broadly outline the scope of current access challenges in the County, including how the public feels about existing publicly owned public access sites. This information will be used to inform and set future public policy, evaluate site retention and expansion, and help qualify for future grant funding opportunities.
The survey will open January 4, 2016 and will close March 31, 2016. Upon completion responses will be analyzed and a summary of results will be organized and made available to the public in May. This information will also be incorporated into a regional public access master plan currently under development by the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission and the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority.
