2023 Update to the Harbor Management Plan 

The Harbor Management Commission is updating the Harbor Management Plan for the first time since 1995! The Plan lays out the vision and strategies for how Clinton approaches activities in Town waters and adjacent land.  Some topics in the plan include maintaining channels for boaters, setting policy for how moorings are permitted, addressing conflicts between various groups that are active in Clinton’s waters, protecting natural resources, and advising on issues such as coastal development and public access to the Harbor.  


The Commission conducted a public survey about harbor issues and received 88 responses. On April 24th the Commission hosted a public meeting with consultants from RACE Coastal Engineering to present survey results and gather additional feedback about key issues the new Harbor Management Plan should address. The presentation from the meeting is available here.
