Managing the Coastal Zone

Managing the Coastal Zone

(p.209) Chapter 6 Managing the Coastal Zone
Regulating Paradise

David L. Callies

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter analyzes how coastal zone management has been the subject of state and local regulation through much of the last five decades in the United States. However, it was not until the mid-1970s that a national program of coastal zone management commenced under the federal Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA). Designed largely to encourage states in coastal areas to plan, manage, and regulate the use of land therein, the CZMA provides funds for the creation and implementation of state coastal zone management plans. In 1975, the State of Hawaiʻi responded to this federal coastal zone initiative, first with a Shoreland Protection Act, then with a Coastal Zone Management Act of its own: the Hawaiʻi Coastal Zone Management Act (HCZMA).
