Presentation Abstract

The Green Shores for Homes (GSH) credit system addresses a diversity of initiatives related to retention or restoration coastal processes, nearshore habitats, runoff management and shore stewardship for single waterfront homes. One of the key objectives of GSH is to provide guidance and resources to homeowners as to the best options for sustainable management of their shorelines. This presentation will review the technical basis for the credits, the credit structure and submittal process and provide background on how they may be applied in a single waterfront home setting.
