- Regulations limiting harbor protection measures (e.g. groins, bulkheads).
- Downtown neighborhood flood barrier
- Concerns with funding sources and pace of progress.
- Concerns with where water will go during flooding of downtown.
- Harbor walk way
- Will it improve resilience?
- Opportunities for hard barrier and leading saltmarsh (NBS).
- Regulations limiting constructing over salt marshes.
- Washington St is a major thoroughfare, flooding concerns.
- Jetty redirecting waves that dislodge rocks into harbor.
- Jetty causing Brant Point flooding.
- Jetty improving flushing of harbor allowing for shell fishing.
- Lawn runoff causing poor water quality in Brant Harbor.
- Entrance for creek going into long pond is 6 inches deep, used to be 6 feet deep, used to dredge.
