EBC Ocean and Coastal Resources Program: Waterfront Development in Massachusetts Ports – Changing Landscapes

February 19, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Massachusetts ports are re-emerging as economic engines.  Major landside development projects are proposed in several ports.  Waterborne passenger transportation, including cruise ships, is expanding.  Marine science and technology presents emerging opportunities.  Infrastructure improvements such as dredging and surface transportation projects are planned as well.  These developments are prompting calls for more flexible land use restrictions  within Designated Port Areas to accommodate and encourage the new maritime industries.  Moreover, the Commonwealth will soon publish its final strategic plan that calls for, among other things, a new statewide maritime council to help coordinate port policy, funding and development in Massachusetts.
This EBC program will provide you with an up-to-date report on important Port developments in Massachusetts and the emerging opportunities.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
