The broad purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of port development and urban waterfront revitalization in the United States. A review was undertaken of ports and urban waterfront revitalization literature, site visits to cities which had taken innovative approaches to planning, and a nation-wide survey of ports' administrators and urban waterfront redevelopment interests. The report provides a readable and informal discussion based on information which is fairly well-known in the field. Recommendations are presented for consideration of planners, developers, ports' administrators, and others who are interested in the resolution of port and urban waterfront revitalization interests. This study was conducted as part of the Maritime Administration University Research Program-1978.
