Managing Coastal Resources: Shuttle, Shellfish & Plastics

August 1st from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

On Thursday, August 1, Brewster Community Network will host a forum from 6:30 – 8 pm at Brewster Ladies' Library. We'll review our new Coastal Resource Management Plan (CRMP) and focus on three vital aspects of enjoying, using, and protecting Brewster's coastal environments. 

Knowledgable speakers will introduce each part of our discussions:

  • Mary O'Neill, from the Brewster Coastal Committee, on the objectives and priorities of the new CRMP.
  • Steven Tupper, from Cape Cod Commission, on a proposed pilot beach shuttle project to increase access to coastal landings without adding new parking.
  • Chris Miller, from our Natural Resources Department, on the current status of Brewster's commercial shellfishing activities.
  • Chris Powicki, from Sierra Club's Cape Cod Group, on proposed state legislation and Brewster-based efforts to ban the single-use plastics that kill ocean wildlife and degrade coastal resources.
