  • Description:
    "A Management Plan outlines the purposes and manner in which an area is to be used. It sets the management objectives, policies, and strategies to achieve the stated objectives. It also addresses the administrative structure, resource use, zoning, boundaries, financial support, staff needs, and monitoring plans. A successful Management Plan provides Park managers with a blueprint of how the Park will function, but will also be flexible and allow for modifications to be made when deemed appropriate. During the planning process of the Marine Park, specific issues were identified that have shaped the design of the Park. These issues range from current resource use, to activities that threaten the Park, to types of research that should take place in the Park. The synthesis of these issues, their complexities, and solutions, take the form of a Management Plan. The Management Plan is a working document that should be updated periodically, and should be used to actively and appropriately manage the Park, ultimately leading to the sustainable use of coastal and marine resources. The management objectives outlined in this Plan represent short term, measurable steps toward attaining this goal"--Page 6.
