The Planning Committee of the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership provides leadership in defining the overall planning policies for management of the Boston Harbor Islands national park area. The Committee is composed of Partnership agency representatives and of members of the Advisory Committee. The Planning Committee recommends and implements both long term and short term strategies for increasing accessibility to the islands; improving the quality of the visitor experience; and, protecting and restoring the natural, historic, archeological, and cultural resources and landscapes. The Committee initiates and conducts studies or analyses relevant to these strategies, and encourages partners to present all new projects to the Committee for review and advice to the partner and the Partnership.
The Planning Committee focuses on the use of land and water areas and the impact of that use on the island resources; reviews the nature and quality of physical improvements to the islands and makes recommendations to the Partnership on such activities and on the interrelationship of the activities. The Planning Committee facilitates and coordinates the comprehensive review of all park activities.
The Planning Committee:
Renewable Energy & Sustainable Design – The Subcommittee on Renewable Energy & Sustainable Design (SRESD) actively works to bring recommendations to the Planning Committee on ways that the park can be an environmental leader around energy use and conservation, and sustainable use of natural resources.
