TEXAS NAVIGATION DISTRICTS AND REGIONAL PLANNING IN THE TEXAS GULF COAST AREA

The role that navigation districts should play in terms of regional land use and environmental control planning is discussed in this booklet. The author contends that navigation districts should neither become regional land use planners and environmental policemen, nor receive preferential treatment in matters concerning land use and environmental regulation. Four major areas are discussed: the status of navigation districts under Texas law; areas of concurrent federal and navigation district activities; the relationship of navigation districts to the problems of environmental control; and specific policy recommendations concerning the future role of navigation districts.
