Waterways Board


The purpose of the Waterways Board is to provide a broad-based citizen management organization that guides the use and development of Gloucester’s waterways and public waterfront facilities. The Waterways Board shall be the City body which establishes policies and regulations for Gloucester’s waterways. It is intended that the Board adopt clear, concise, and fair policies and regulations that promote improved access to the water for all citizens including commercial fishermen, business owners, and recreational boaters. In cooperation with the Harbormaster and other City staff, the Board is intended to ensure that our waterways are well-planned and maintained, utilized to the maximum extent possible, are safe, and reflect positively upon the City of Gloucester.
