Report Relives the First Four Decades of New Jersey’s Coastal Management Program

report coverLook back at 40 years of protection, policy and progress accomplished through New Jersey’s Coastal Management Program (CMP) in a newly released report by the Urban Coast Institute (UCI). Presented in the four decades from 1978 through 2018, the report reviews the milestones the CMP has reached, the events that have shaped its policies, and some of the trials and tribulations it has faced along the way.

The report recognizes the tireless efforts of many who made the protection and management of New Jersey’s coastal resources their mission since the CMP’s adoption. The UCI recently honored the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance, represented by Honorary Co-Chairs and former Govs. Tom Kean and Jim Florio, along with four other individuals who made significant contributions to the CMP’s success at the 14th Annual Coastal and Ocean Champion Awards Reception.
