In the pursuit of more inclusive shoreline access across the state, the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (RI CRMC) and partners Rhode Island Sea Grant and the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve are seeking feedback from the people who live, work, and play near areas with access to the shoreline.

The survey closes May 26.

This survey is part of a needs assessment on shoreline access undertaken with assistance from Impact by Design. This will serve as the foundation for a stakeholder and planning process to ultimately create a Public Shoreline Access Management Plan for Rhode Island. Take the survey and share your perspectives with us! The survey closes May 26.

Please feel free to forward this survey to friends, family, and colleagues.
