Since the 2004 legislative session, legislators and civic advocacy organizations have urged the EQB to adopt new mandatory categories for lakeshore development to address the great and growing development pressure now affecting lakeshore environments. In discussions regarding lakeshore development, it has become apparent that lakeshores are not unique and that similar development pressures affect many other highly important natural resources. EQB has been asked to adopt a new category designed to address development on the edges of such highly important natural resources.
