[Saturday, June 6, 2015]
Pennsylvania's Coastal Resources Management Program has developed a draft Section 309 Assessment and Strategy in accordance with section 309 of the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C.A. § 1456b), as amended in 1990 and 1996. This assessment is part of a voluntary coastal zone enhancement grants program (program) that encourages states and territories to develop program changes in one or more of the following nine coastal enhancement areas: coastal wetlands; coastal hazards; public access; marine debris; cumulative and secondary impacts; special area management planning; ocean/Great Lakes resources; energy and government facility siting and activities; and aquaculture. Under this program, the United States Secretary of Commerce is authorized to make awards to states and territories to develop and submit for Federal approval program changes that support attainment of the objectives of one or more of the enhancement areas. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has provided preliminary comments on the draft Section 309 Assessment and Strategy.
The draft Section 309 Assessment and Strategy is available on the Department of Environmental Protection's web site at www.dep.state.pa.us (DEP Keyword: Coastal Zone) or can be obtained by contacting the Department of Environmental Protection Interstate Waters Office at (717) 772-4785.
Interested persons may submit written comments on the draft Section 309 Assessment and Strategy by July 7, 2015. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.

Comments should be submitted in writing to Kevin Hess, Department of Environmental Protection, Interstate Waters Office, P. O. Box 8465, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8465, firstname.lastname@example.org.
