dc.description.abstractThis dissertation examines three state shoreline resources planning programs; Texas, Florida and California's San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. These programs are examined in the context of the federal Coastal Zone Management Act program development criteria. Based on the successes and failures of each state's program a set of policy and organizational guidelines by which states might promote desirable forms of shoreline development is derived. These guidelines include providing a clear understanding of the police power as it relates to the public welfare rationale, and identifying the most appropriate level of government for shoreline resources management to account for state, national and local interests. A concept that appears to incorporate these guidelines and is flexible enough to allow for specific needs involving differences in states' size, extent of shoreline growth pressure, environmental sensitivity and division of power between state and local governments is the "urban development district."en
