The Borough of Fenwick Harbor Management Commission is charged with the responsibility, through the adoption of the Borough’s Harbor Management Plan, to identify existing and potential waterfront problems. The Harbor Management Plan complements the Fenwick Plan of Conservation and Development. Land use Commissions must consider their decisions as they relate to the goals set forth in these two plans.
Throughout its history, the Borough’s character and quality of life have been intrinsically tied to the water and shoreline resources of the Connecticut River, South Cove and Long Island Sound. The natural coastal resources include coastal waters, tidal wetlands, intertidal flats, beaches, sand dunes and shorefront flora and fauna. These are of extremely high quality, fragile, relatively undisturbed and irreplaceable.
