Coordinates defining the features
|Urban||The purpose of designating the urban environment is to ensure optimum utilization of the shorelines of the state within urbanized areas by permitting intesive use and by managing development so that it enhances and maintains the shorelines of the state for a multiplicity of urban uses.|
|Rural||The purpose of designating the rural environment is to restrict intensive development, function as a buffer between urban areas, and maintain open spaces and opportunities for recreational uses, within the ecological carrying capacity of the land and water resource.|
|Conservancy||Conservancy areas are intended to maintain their existing character|
|Natural||The purpose of designating the Natural environment is to preserve and restore those natural resource systems existing relatively free of human influence.|
|Urban/Rural||Those areas located in both Urban and Rural designations|
|Rural/Conservancy||Those areas located in both Rural and Conservancy designations|
|Not in Shoreline MMP area||Locations outside of designated areas|
|0||not associated SAO wetland|
|1||associated SAO wetland|
|0||not associated FEMA floodplain|
|1||associated FEMA floodplain|
Sequential unique whole numbers that are automatically generated.
|Urban||Located within urbanized area|
This data is utilized to permit review staff to determine if development proposals are within the extent of a shoreline mgmt area; and if so; to identify the shoreline environment designation. Once determined; the appropriate shoreline development regulations can be applied to the proposal.
