Consistency Review

The Division of Development reviews the activities of federal agencies which may affect land and water uses and natural resources of New York State's federally defined coastal zone for consistency with the Coastal Management Program and approved Local Waterfront Revitalization Programs. These notices are issued during the course of the Division's review of proposed federal activities. They are issued weekly.

In addition to seeking public comments, this notice indicates that the draft local program has been submitted to the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in the U.S. Department of Commerce for review and approval as a change to the State's Coastal Management Program. These notices are issued periodically..


Coastal Management Program Amendments or Routine Changes

The Office of Planning and Development may periodically propose amendments or changes to the State's Coastal Management Program. Public notice will be issued by the Office indicating that a proposed amendment or routine change has been submitted to the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management of the U.S. Department of Commerce for review and approval and, if necessary, indicate that a public hearing will be held. This notice may be issued for incorporating state designated significant coastal fish and wildlife habitats or scenic areas of statewide significance into the program, modifying the coastal zone boundary, changing the program's coastal policies or their enforceable laws and regulations, or other program revisions. A notice will also be issued by the Office indicating that an amendment or routine change has been approved by the U.S. Department of Commerce and stating the effective date of the amendment or change.

In accordance with the New York State Waterfront Revitalization of Coastal Areas and Inland Waterways Act and the New York State Coastal Management Program, the Town of Huron, located within Wayne County, prepared a draft Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP). The LWRP is a comprehensive management program for the Town’s waterfront resources along Lake Ontario.
To approve the Town of Huron draft LWRP, pursuant to Article 42 of the NYS Executive Law, it is required that potentially affected State, federal, and local agencies be consulted to assure that the program does not conflict with existing policies and programs. For this purpose, this draft LWRP is available online at http://www.dos.ny.gov/opd/programs/WFRevitalization/LWRP_draft.html.
Comments on the draft LWRP are due by June 23, 2014. This is a new timeline for the review period, previously announced in a published notice and subsequently postponed. At the close of this required review period the Department of State will coordinate responses to comments received with the Town of Huron and modifications to the LWRP will be made, as needed. Following adoption of the LWRP by the Town and its subsequent approval by the New York State Secretary of State, pursuant to 15 CFR 923.84(b), the New York State Department of State (DOS) will request incorporation of the LWRP into the State’s Coastal Management Program by the federal Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) as a Routine Program Change.
