TRENDS IN THE PLANNING, DESIGN, AND USE OF SUPPORT FACILITIES FOR SPORT AND PLEASURE NAVIGATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Significant growth in sport and recreational boating ownership and activity in the United States, and a broadening of the regulation and use of U.S. waterfront areas and navigable waters during the decade of the 1980s, coupled with limited growth in the number of new boating, berthing and support facilities such as marinas and launch ramps, have resulted in major changes and trends in the planning, design, use, and management of public and private support facilities for U.S. recreational boating. This paper describes these changes and trends in both national and selected regional areas-- including Southern California, and portions of the Lake Michigan and Gulf of Mexico shorelines--that reflect the diversity of factors present in the U.S. experience.
