DEEP: Blue Plan Significant Areas

Long Island Sound Blue Plan
Ecologically Significant Areas and Significant Human Use Areas
Protecting the natural resources and human uses in Long Island Sound is a primary goal of the Blue Plan. The identification of these critical elements and their spatial locations is a necessary step for enabling the Blue Plan and its policies to meet that protection goal. Please note that these are draft maps and definitions, and we are soliciting comments and input from Long Island Sound stakeholders to improve these important materials.
For additional background information, please see the ESA Presentation Slides and/or the SHUA Presentation Slides.
We encourage you to provide feedback on the draft ESA and SHUA materials by participating in the Public Hearing scheduled for Thursday January 31, 2019 at the Clinton Town Hall Green Room, 54 East Main Street, Clinton at 6:30 pm.
