Beverly Harbor and Waterfront Plan


The City has worked proactively to encourage appropriate development along the Beverly harbor and waterfront that allows mixed-uses while supporting water dependent uses, and improves public access while respecting the character of surrounding neighborhoods.  The creation of a Harbor and Waterfront Plan is the next step in taking a comprehensive look at how the Beverly Harbor and Bass River should be developed.  The plan considers the areas cohesively, resulting in a clear vision for development that creates a vibrant and active waterfront while providing improved public access and enjoyment of both Beverly Harbor and the Bass River. Please click here for additional information regarding this planning process.
