Monroe County Marine Management Strategic Plan

Executive Summary


Monroe County is experiencing the loss and redevelopment of waterfront marine facilities and their associated businesses and employment. A limited supply of waterfront land and an increasing demand by different uses is leading to loss of the “working waterfront,” which includes commercial marinas, boatyards, wet and dry storage, fish houses, commercial fishing vessel dockage and marine-related industries such as boat dealers, boat repair and maintenance services, commercial fishing and tourism. The current trends are conversion of waterfront to non-water dependent uses and privatization of waterfront reducing public water access.


Monroe County retained the South Florida Regional Planning Council (SFRPC) and the Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions of Florida Atlantic University (CUES) to develop the Monroe County Marine Management Strategic Plan to provide a comprehensive strategy for protecting and preserving the working waterfronts of Monroe County. This report presents a coordinated implementation strategy specifying government policies, programs, regulations and legislative measures that will establish the structure to achieve the objective of preserving the working waterfront.
