Waterfront development is acknowledged as being significant to urban tourism and, ideally, public participation should be required in the development program. This study aims to examine why and how community participation might contribute to good practice for the planning and decision-making processes for resource and environmental management, especially for long-term waterfront development. Principles for the engagement of multi stakeholders in planning are reviewed and evaluated in the context of tourism and waterfront development in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The principles of local participation are assessed in a situation in which there is tension between the achievement of socio-economic benefits and the protection of environmental quality. This research involved a mixed methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative research techniques. Fieldwork comprising questionnaire surveys, interviews and on-site observations were used to provide evidences of waterfront development in Manado and public participation process that preceded it. This study result shows that waterfronts have multiple uses of tourism and therefore are likely to be of interest to and involve a variety of stakeholders. If the interests of various groups are to be incorporated into development plans, leading to greater support for them, then public participation should occur and, ideally, partnerships among stakeholders should be established.
