Summary as introduced:

Eastern Shore Water Access Authority Act. Allows the Counties of Accomack and Northampton by resolution to declare that there is a need for a public access authority.

The Authority's duties shall include identifying land that can be secured for use by the general public as a public access site, researching all identified sites, determining appropriate public use levels of identified access sites, developing appropriate mechanisms for transferring title of Commonwealth or private holdings to the Authority, developing appropriate acquisition and site management plans for public access usage, determining what holdings should be sold to advance the mission of the Authority, securing funding and permits for dredging projects and facilities construction projects that enhance recreational and commercial public access, and performing other duties. The Authority shall be governed by a board of directors. Whenever it shall appear to the Authority that the need for the Authority no longer exists, the Authority, or in the proper case, any participating political subdivision, may petition the circuit court of a participating political subdivision for the dissolution of the Authority.
