Approval of Routine Program Changes

Pursuant to 15.CFR 923.84, the federal Office for Coastal Management (OCM), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has concurred that the incorporation of the following changes to the federally approved Michigan Coastal Zone Management Program (MCZMP) constitute Routine Program Changes (RPCs):

Transfer of the MCZMP from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) pursuant to Executive Order No. 2017-9;

Incorporation of five State agency internal guidance documents that collectively establish:

• Guidance for MDEQ staff implementing Michigan’s shorelands protection and management statute and administrative rules;
• Guidance for MDEQ staff considering climate change adaptation and mitigation measures in certain programs; and
• Guidance for MDNR staff to increase safety at designated swimming areas in State parks.

The five guidance documents direct the State’s internal implementation procedures for certain programs. None of these changes incorporated into the MCZMP will be used for Federal Consistency review purposes.

The MCZMP issued a public notice of the RPCs submittal on July 3, 2018.

The full text of the RPCs concurrence request submitted to OCM and the OCM concurrence letter dated August 9, 2018 are available for viewing and downloading through links on the MCZMP webpage at www.michigan.gov/coastalmanagement.
