Rhode Island Coastal Zone Management Program

Program Overview

The Rhode Island Coastal Management Program, approved by NOAA in 1978, is administered by the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council. The primary authority for the coastal management program is the Coastal Resources Management Act of 1971. Rhode Island’s coastal zone encompasses the entire state, although the inland extent of the coastal management program’s regulatory authority is generally 200 feet inland from any coastal feature..
