From the COMMONWEALTH OF THE NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS
COASTAL MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
of the DIVISION OF COASTAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
DATE: May 11, 2021
NOTICE: The Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality (BECQ) Division of Coastal Resources
Management (DCRM) is currently reviewing a federal general consistency determination from the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) regarding
the proposed in-water activities and land-based restoration activities analyzed in their Programmatic
Environmental Impact Statement. More information about the determination can be accessed via the
DCRM website at: https://dcrm.gov.mp/wp-content/uploads/crm/CNMI-CRCP-General-ConsistencyDetermination_04292021.pdf.
Federal consistency is a provision of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) that requires federal actions
that affect the coastal zone to be consistent to the maximum extent practicable with the enforceable
policies of a coastal state’s federally approved coastal management plan.
Comments on whether the project is consistent with the enforceable policies of the CNMI’s coastal
management program can be submitted to the Division of Coastal Resources Management at fedcon@
dcrm.gov.mp.
This public notice has been published for compliance with 15 CFR § 930.42. DCRM is soliciting public
comments for fifteen (15) days, starting on May 11, 2020 and ending on May 26, 2020. We welcome your
feedback and thank you for your consideration.
