Public Notice of Substantial Change on Adoption to Proposed Amendments
Coastal Zone Management Rules N.J.A.C. 7:7, Appendix D
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing substantial changes on adoption to the proposed amendments, published April 6, 2015 (see 47 N.J.R. 683(a)), to the coastal wetlands maps promulgated under and listed in the Coastal Zone Management Rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7. (Effective July 6, 2015, the list of coastal wetlands maps formerly codified at N.J.A.C. 7:7-2.2(c) was recodified as N.J.A.C. 7:7, Appendix D; see 47 N.J.R. 1392(a).)
A statement of the substance of the proposed changes on adoption follows: The Department proposed to amend the wetlands boundary reflected on coastal wetland maps applicable to the Holgate section of Long Beach Township, Ocean County. The proposed boundary reflected the Department’s determination of current conditions in coastal wetlands reflected on Coastal Wetlands Maps 252-2112 and 259-2112 in response to a petition for rulemaking filed by Kevin J. Coakley, Esq. on behalf of Mark Davies Builders & Developers LLC, David Collins and Esther Tessel Collins, Kim Lambert, and Michelle Forte. The originally proposed amendments to the wetlands boundary apply to the petitioners’ property and certain adjacent properties. Through the notice of proposed substantial change on adoption, the Department is proposing to revise the proposed coastal wetlands boundary on one such adjacent property, Block 1.61, Lot 1, reflected on Coastal Wetlands Map 252-2112, to accurately reflect the extent of coastal wetlands on the property based on information presented on behalf of the property owner during the public comment period and verified by a site inspection conducted by the Department.
The public notice of substantial change on adoption is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated April 4, 2016.
