Northern Neck Planning District Commission
Coastal Technical Assistance Program
Project Description as Proposed:
The NNPDC FY11 environmental work program will consist of four work tasks:
1) NNPDC staff will provide coastal management support to local governments, planning Commissions, and local planning staff. NNPDC staff will provide GIS analysis of land development proposals, land conversion and land use plans. Special assistance will be given to Westmoreland County to reconcile re-projection problems with existing GIS data layers and to cater the system to meet the needs of the Land Use office.
2) NNPDC Staff will support local planning, staff education, training and coordination through quarterly Coastal Managers (Land Use Administrator's) Meetings and four training sessions. Four training sessions for local county staff will be integrated into meeting schedule, to assist localities in being prepared for new state and federal regulations to improve water quality and to address other coastal issues such as coastal hazards.
3) NNPDC staff will revise/update five digital tax maps (including inserts) for Northumberland County.
4) NNPDC staff will create a canoe/kayak water trails map for Lancaster, Richmond and Westmoreland Counties. Northumberland County already has a canoe/kayak water trails map that was created by a citizen group last year. With many local citizens as well as out- of-town tourists asking for water trail maps, there is definitely a regional need for such maps for use by the public. There will be a county map of all the water trails displayed as well as individual maps for each water trail route. All water trail maps will be published on the Northern Neck Planning District Commission’s website and will be downloadable for interested parties so they can print specific routes when needed.Federal Funding:
