The Town of Hamlin 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 Ontario, Sandy, Cowsucker, and Yanty Creeks.

The Town of Hamlin 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 Town's LWRP was originally approved in 1991, and subsequently amended in 2008 to better reflect current local conditions and issues. The approval history of Town of Hamlin LWRP was published in a final public notice.

The 1991 Town of Hamlin LWRP provides a historic perspective on the evolution of the Town’s waterfront revitalization efforts.

The Town of Hamlin and numerous volunteers are working together to create a historic trail located in Hamlin Beach State Park, which will follow the footprints of the buildings of the former Civilian Conservation Corps and Prisoner of War site, opened in 1935 as part of a program intended to provide relief from the effects of the Great Depression. Also, the Town, in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), is constantly improving its Sandy Creek fishery.
