Boston’s Downtown Waterfront Plan Debuts
The Boston Planning and Development Agency recently released the Downtown Waterfront District Municipal Waterfront Plan (the “Waterfront Plan”). While virtually the entire Boston Harbor Waterfront is subject to Chapter 91 jurisdiction, municipalities are allowed to modify Chapter 91 regulations, as recently amended and promulgated by MassDEP, by enacting municipal harbor plans. In return for the regulatory flexibility, municipal harbor plans create a combination of baseline requirements, amplifications, substitute provisions and offsets of Chapter 91 regulations.
