Wetland and Shoreland Zoning Tools

Description: The Beginning with Habitat Toolbox provides several examples of how towns have adopted more specific rules beyond what minimum shoreland zoning guidelines require. As a result, these towns have not only increased habitat protections, but are in better control of protecting surface and groundwater quality, and managing stormwater at the local level. Includes wetland and shoreland zoning definitions, a model municipal freshwater wetlands ordinance, suggested amendments to the state’s minimum shoreland zoning provisions, resource protection ordinances, and in lieu fee mitigation funds.
