Long Island Sound Blue Plan holding webinar today

Publish date:

The draft of the Long Island Sound Blue Plan has been released and businesses and participants in the recreational boating industry can engage in the process of revising the informational and policy tool intended to facilitate better siting of new projects in the sound.

A webinar focused on recreational boating will be held today at 2 p.m. Those interested in joining the webinar can click here.

The Blue Plan’s goals include protecting Long Island Sound’s existing human uses and natural resources as well as reducing potential conflicts. It’s not a regulatory program and does not create permit, but the plan will provide information, guidance and direction in how Connecticut’s regulatory programs will be carried out. The complete plan and map viewer are available online.

In addition to today’s webinar, there is a public meeting scheduled for tomorrow at the City Hall Auditorium in Milford, Conn., at 7 p.m.
