Draft Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Plan; Public Comment Period
[37 Pa.B. 2038]
[Saturday, April 28, 2007]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has developed a draft Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Plan (CELCP). CELCP was created by an Act of Congress in 2002 to provide funding for coastal land conservation. To qualify to receive funds under CELCP, the Act requires states to develop and submit to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for approval, a CELC plan that provides an assessment of priority conservation needs and guidance for nominating and selecting land conservation projects within the state.
The CELCP document is available on the Department's website at www.depweb.state.pa.us (DEP Keywords: ''Coastal Zone Management Program/Coastal Zones'') or can be obtained by contacting the Water Planning Office at (717) 772-4785.
Comments on the draft plan may be submitted to Jeff Dewey, Department of Environmental Protection, Water Planning Office, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 2063, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2063, jdewey@ state.pa.us. The Department must receive comments on the draft plan by May 29, 2007.
Following the 30-day public comment period, the Department will review submitted comments, prepare a written comments and response document and prepare a final Plan, which will be submitted to the United States Commerce Department. The availability of the final Plan will be announced in a future edition of the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
Questions concerning the draft plan should be directed to Jeff Dewey at (717) 772-5619 or at the e-mail address provided previously.
