21 Jan Virginia CZM Program and Coastal Public Access Authorities
Program Name: Virginia CZM Program and Coastal Public Access Authorities
Resource Type: State
State: Virginia, Mid-Atlantic
Agency: Program Source: Technical/Planning Assistance
Description: Public Access Authorities are a tremendous asset in meeting the Governor’s 400,000 acre land conservation goal. These local authorities can often close on land deals far more quickly than state and federal agencies, and they can own and manage the land in perpetuity. They also create a meaningful avenue for local priorities to be addressed by local communities.
