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.
