"The State of Illinois has submitted its Coastal Management Program to the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management for approval pursuant to section 306 of the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 as amended (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq. Approval would allow program administrative grants to be awarded to the State and would require that Federal actions be consistent with the program. This document includes a copy of the program, which is a comprehensive management program for coastal land and water use activities. It consists of numerous policies on diverse management issues which are administered under Illinois laws and is the culmination of several years of program development. The Illinois Coastal Management Program (ICMP) promotes the beneficial use of coastal resources, prevents their impairment, and manages major activities that substantially affect numerous resources. The ICMP will enhance decision-making processes used for determining the appropriateness of actions in the coastal area. Approval and implementation of the ICMP will enhance governance of Illinois' coastal land and water uses according to coastal policies and standards contained in Illinois' statutes, authorities and rules. Federal alternatives to ICMP approval include delaying or denying approval, if certain requirements of the Coastal Zone Management Act have not been met. The State could modify parts of the program or withdraw its application for Federal approval if either of the above Federal alternatives results from circulation of this document. The final program Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) includes responses to comments received on the draft EIS"--Abstract.
