  • Notice of Routine Program Change Request


    A routine request to update the approved Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) has been submitted to the federal Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM), of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The Department of Environmental Protection has determined that the proposed program changes are a routine program change as defined by 15 CFR 923.84. This routine program change will incorporate relevant statutory changes to the referenced statutes enacted by the Florida Legislature during the 2009 legislative session, which are included in the FCMP. These proposed changes seek to update all statutes which are part of the list of statutes that make up the FCMP, available at: cmp/federal/24_statutes.htm.

    Staff has evaluated these changes pursuant to 15 CFR 923.80 and concluded that the changes are not amendments to the FCMP. These changes will not result in any substantial change to the enforceable policies or authorities of the FCMP related to uses subject to management, special management areas, boundaries, authorities and organization, or coordination, public involvement and national interest.

    This notice has been sent to affected parties, including affected local governments, state agencies, and regional offices of relevant federal agencies as required by 15 CFR 923.84(b)(2). A list of persons and organizations notified is available for inspection or can be provided at cost upon request from the FCMP.

    Pursuant to 15 CFR 923.84, comments on whether the changes constitute a routine program change of the FCMP may be submitted to John King, NOAA/OCRM, Coastal Programs Division N/ORM3, Suite 11305, 1305 East-West Highway SSMC4, Silver Spring, MD 20910 within 21 days of the date of publication of this notice.
