  • Alternative Title:
    Section 307 of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 ; Federal consistency overview, August 10, 2007 ;
  • Description:
    "This document is an overview of the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) federal consistency provision and is the principal educational material used in OCRM's Federal Consistency Workshops. This overview is for general information and educational purposes only; it is not an enforceable document or intended to establish policy and should not be cited to for CZMA compliance purposes. The CZMA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regulations contain the information needed for CZMA compliance, see CZMA ʹ 307 (16 U.S.C. ʹ 1456) and NOAA's federal consistency regulations, 15 C.F.R. part 930 [...]. The CZMA was enacted on October 27, 1972, to encourage coastal states, Great Lake states, and U.S. Territories and Commonwealths (collectively referred to as 'coastal states' or 'states') to be proactive in managing natural resources for their benefit and the benefit of the Nation. The CZMA recognizes a national interest in the resources of the coastal zone and in the importance of balancing the competing uses of those resources. The CZMA is a voluntary program for states. If a state elects to participate it develops and implements a coastal management program (CMP) pursuant to federal requirements. See CZMA ʹ 306(d); 15 C.F.R. part 923. State CMPs are comprehensive management plans that describe the uses subject to the management program, the authorities and enforceable policies of the management program, the boundaries of the state's coastal zone, the organization of the management program, and related state coastal management concerns"--Introduction
