North Shore Management Plan Update
The North Shore Management board last updated its comprehensive plan back in the early 2000s. A traditional comprehensive plan is updated every five to ten years. The new plan update started back in May of 2015 with help from the public and from a streeing committee that was made of representatives from the NSMB, CAC and members of other agencies and organizations. The update addressed definitions and related sections of the plan, current events that should be considered by the board moving forward, and also create a new accessible online format for the plan. Please click below to see this new interactive comprehensive plan update.
