May 18, 1998
Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management (MCZM) announces the appointment of Stephen Mague to serve as a liaison between state and federal agencies and coastal communities for project development and regulatory review. Mr. Mague will be available to coastal cities and towns to work on port planning and development projects, as well as other MCZM initiatives.
"Stephen is a tremendous addition to the MCZM team, and will allow us to give additional support to coastal communities that are dealing with port development and other issues," emphasized Peg Brady, Director of MCZM. "As a seasoned professional with almost two decades of environmental engineering and project management experience, I am confident that Stephen will be able to make an immediate difference."
Mr. Mague has extensive professional experience in environmental and civil engineering consulting, having worked for more than 18 years at Shofield Brothers of New England, Inc. There he served in various capacities over the years, including Senior Project Manager, Director of Operations, Engineering Department Head, and Assistant Office Manager. He designed and managed civil engineering and environmental projects, obtaining local, state, and federal permits, and was responsible for day-to-day management and administration of a 20-person staff, including the Engineering Division and Senior Project Managers. In addition, he is a Department of Environmental Protection-approved Septic System Inspector and a Registered Sanitarian.
Before coming to MCZM, Mr. Mague completed a Masters of Science in Environmental Sciences from the University of Massachusetts Boston, where he focused on environmental law and policy, coastal zone management, water quality issues, and the public trust doctrine. He also earned a BA in Environmental Studies form Colby College.
His proven experience in project management, civil engineering technologies, stormwater control systems, and best management practices makes Mr. Mague uniquely well- qualified as MCZM's Regional Technical Assistant.
"As a life-long resident of Massachusetts, I am excited by the opportunities and
challenges facing MCZM," said Mague. "Having sailed extensively along its shores, I hope
that my technical background, combined with local knowledge, will contribute to the
continued success of MCZM and to the stewardship of the Massachusetts' coastal zone."
