Notice of Rule Proposal
Coastal Management rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7E

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing to amend the Coastal Zone Management rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7E-8.11 and 8A.  The proposed amendments are in response to comments from the public that could not be addressed in the adoption of the public access rules that were proposed on November 6, 2006 (see 38 N.J.R. 4570(a)) without further public notice and comment.  The proposed amendments would allow for the modification of the linear public access along a tidal waterway at marinas, superhighways, and for homeland security.  Amendments are also proposed to modify the requirements for municipalities participating in Shore Protection Program funding through a State Aid Agreement for projects along the Atlantic Ocean, Sandy Hook Bay, Raritan Bay and Delaware Bay and their shores.  Lastly, amendments are proposed to the Green Acres funding requirements to change the timing for submission of the public access plan and Public Access Instrument, where applicable.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated December 17, 2007.  A copy of the proposal is available from: the Department’s website at www.state.nj.us/dep; at County libraries, or by contacting LexisNexis Customer Service at (800) 223-1944 or www.lexisnexis.com/bookstore. Be advised that there may be a fee for obtaining a copy of the proposal from some sources.
