Federal Consistency under the Coastal Zone Management Act; Spring Garden Street Waterfront Rehabilitation Project

[45 Pa.B. 2557]
[Saturday, May 23, 2015]

 This notice is published under section 306(d)(14) of the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C.A. § 1455(d)(14)), regarding public participation during consistency determinations. The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), Coastal Resources Management Program has received notice that the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) is proposing the Spring Garden Street Waterfront Rehabilitation Project.

 The DRWC is seeking authorization from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (CENAP-OP-R-2014-280) to demolish 160 feet of the Festival Pier and 284 feet of the Spring Garden Street Pier located at the intersection of Spring Garden Street and Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia. The demolished area is proposed to be converted into an enhanced mitigation area for underwater habitat. The DRWC intends to develop the remaining existing piers for mixed-use development, including a combination of public, residential, commercial and retail spaces to be surrounded on three sides by the Delaware River. This project is also being authorized by the Department under Water Obstruction and Encroachment Permit E51-267.

 This project is subject to Department review for Federal consistency because it is a Federal license and permit activity and will have reasonably foreseeable effects on this Commonwealth's coastal resources or uses.

 In accordance with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regulations in 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart D (relating to consistency for activities requiring a Federal license or permit), the DRWC has determined that the proposed activity will be conducted in a manner consistent with the applicable enforceable policies of the Commonwealth's NOAA-approved Coastal Resources Management Program. Interested parties may request a copy of the Federal Consistency Certification from the Department contact listed as follows.

 Questions regarding this review should be directed to Matthew Walderon, Federal Consistency Coordinator, (717) 772-2196,

 The Department will consider all comments received on or before June 15, 2015, before issuing a final Federal consistency concurrence or objection. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments, including comments submitted by e-mail, must include the originator's name and address. Written comments should be submitted to Matthew Walderon, Department of Envi-ronmental Protection, Interstate Waters Office, 400 Market Street, P. O. Box 8465, Harrisburg, PA 17101-8465,

Acting Secretary
