Zoning Extends its Boundaries
Zoning laws may soon apply to the ocean as well as private land. "The proposal would set rules governing competing uses of the sea, such as wind farming and fishing, and identify critical areas such as fish spawning regions that may need outright protection. Although short on specifics, the report is one of the first attempts by any state to coordinate the often jumbled management of state waters, which generally extend 3 miles from the US shoreline."
