Town of Evans LWRP



The Town of Evans Local Waterfront Revitalization Program is a locally prepared comprehensive land and water use plan for the Town's natural, public, and developed waterfront resources along the Lake Erie, Eighteen-Mile and Big Sister creeks.

The Town of Evans LWRP refines and supplements the State's Coastal Management Program and provides a comprehensive framework within which critical waterfront issues can be addressed, and planned waterfront improvement projects can be pursued and implemented. The original Town of Evans LWRP was approved in 1987, and subsequently amended in 2013 to better reflect current conditions and issues.

The approval history of the Town of Evans LWRP amendment can be found in the final public notice published in the New York State Register August 14, 2013/Volume XXXV, Issue 33.
