Shoreline Commission

Shoreline Commission 

Shoreline Commission is created by City Code and consists of nine members, appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by Council. A council appointed liaison serves on the shoreline commission with no privilege beyond a member of the public. The Commission shall study the continuing effects of erosion on Saco's shorefront, and evaluate public usage of the beaches and other public infrastructure within a coastal zone under the jurisdiction of the City of Saco and advise the Council on policy matters relating to coastal erosion and use.

The Commission meets 9 to 10 times per year, usually at the Ferry Beach Association.
