1 ACMP Review Project Review Training Session April 24-26, 2007 Anchorage

2 ACMP Mission Statement The Alaska Coastal Management Program provides stewardship for Alaskas rich and diverse coastal resources to ensure a healthy and vibrant Alaskan coast that efficiently sustains long-term economic and environmental productivity.

3 Project Consistency Reviews Implement the ACMP The ACMP uses the project consistency review process to manage on-the-ground use and development of coastal resources. The review process results in a determination about whether a project is consistent with the ACMP and whether modifications to the project are necessary. A concurrence is necessary for state and federal agencies to issue permits.

4 ACMP Resources Statutes and Regulations: AS 46.40; 11 AAC 110 (Project Review), 112 (Statewide Standards) and 114 (District Plan Regulations) Classification of State Agency Approvals, known as the ABC List Coastal District Plans – containing enforceable policies Coastal Zone Boundaries of Alaska Coastal Project Questionnaire ACMP Website:

5 Roles & Authorities Roles & Authorities for the ACMP Consistency Review Process

6 Coordinates consistency reviews Maintains and updates the coastal project questionnaire (CPQ) Acts as a facilitator to resolve conflicts for single agency reviews (when requested) OPMP: Roles & Authorities OPMP: 11 AAC

7 Nothing in 11 AAC 110 diminishes a state agencys authority A state resource agency : –coordinates a consistency review for projects that require authorizations only from that agency –participates in OPMP- coordinated ACMP reviews (Articles 2, 3, and 4) State Agencies: Roles & Authorities State Agencies: 11 AAC

8 State Resource agencies shall issue authorizations in conformity with the district enforceable policies of the approved coastal management plans and the statewide standards 11 AAC (b) State Agencies: Roles & Authorities State Agencies: 11 AAC

9 Are directed to send CPQ to OPMP if they determine a federal authorization and/or permits from more than their agency are needed. Applicant should also be directed to contact OPMP. 11 AAC Resource agencies must wait for the coordinating agency to issue the final determination before issuing a permit 11 AAC (d) State Agencies: Roles & Authorities State Agencies: 11 AAC

10 Resource agency permits must be issued within five days of receipt of the final determination unless additional time is necessary to fulfill a statute or regulation 11 AAC (f) Resource agencies may deny an authorization under their own authorities even if a project is found consistent with the ACMP. 11 AAC (i)

11 A coastal resource district: may participate in the consistency review process, is considered an affected coastal district under certain circumstances, and has expertise in the interpretation of its program. Coastal Districts: Roles & Authorities Coastal Districts: 11 AAC

12 A district may participate in a consistency review as an affected coastal district if: –The project is located in the coastal district, or –The project is located outside of the district, but it has a direct and significant impact on a coastal resource or use within the coastal zone and within the coastal resource district boundaries Coastal Districts: Affected District Status Roles & Authorities Coastal Districts: Affected District Status

13 direct and significant impact" means an effect of a use, or an activity associated with the use, that will proximately contribute to a material change or alteration of the coastal waters, and in which (A) the use, or activity associated with the use, would have a net adverse effect on the quality of the resources; (B) the use, or activity associated with the use, would limit the range of alternative uses of the resources; or (C) the use would, of itself, constitute a tolerable change or alteration of the resources but which, cumulatively, would have an adverse effect Direct and Significant Impact 11 AAC (13)

14 If potentially affected, a coastal district may: participate in pre-application meetings, participate in determination of scope, submit written comments, and If affected, a coastal district may: request more information, before RFAI deadline, request an elevation. Coastal Districts: Roles & Authorities Coastal Districts:

16 Consistency Review Process: Where are we? Packet Complete Pre-Review Assistance Resolve Issues Day 24/44 Proposed Determination Day 29/49 Deadline to Elevate Day 30/50 Final Determination Determine Applicability Applicant Considers Options Determine Scope Day 1 Start Review Distribute & Consider Comments Draft a Proposed Determination Prepare Public Notice Day 13/25 Request for Additional Information Day 17/30 Deadline for Comments

17 If a project activity: –requires only state resource agency authorization(s) under the C List referred to at 11 AAC –is a federal activity or –requires federal authorizations identified under 11 AAC The C List is all-inclusive. If the permit is not on the C List, it doesnt trigger a consistency review. What triggers a review? Applicability – Basic Question 1 What triggers a review?

18 Project Location: within the coastal zone, or outside the coastal zone and is: – Federal activity with reasonably foreseeable coastal effects (15 CFR (a)); or – Project requiring a federal authorization that has reasonably foreseeable coastal effects [15 CFR (a)(2)] – If a project located outside the coastal zone only needs state authorizations, an ACMP review is not conducted. coastal zone – The coastal waters and adjacent shorelands within the boundaries established under 11 AAC Defined in AS (4) What triggers a review? Applicability – Basic Question 1 What triggers a review?

21 Pre-Review Assistance Pre-Review Assistance 11 AAC Applicant Responsibilities At a minimum, the applicant must provide a brief project description. To the extent feasible, the applicant must provide: 1.A completed CPQ; 2.Map locating the project and associated facilities; 3.Description of man-made or natural features at or near the site.

22 Pre-Review Assistance Pre-Review Assistance 11 AAC Coordinating Agency Responsibilities If requested by the applicant, the coordinating agency may provide: Information about the CPQ & review process Identification of coastal district Identification of applicable enforceable policies Required state and federal authorizations Estimated time schedule for review Additional information requirements

23 When & Why Meetings Needed Pre-Review Assistance When & Why Meetings Needed Pre-Review Assistance meetings are optional but they provide an invaluable service. Facilitate transfer of information between agencies and the applicant Ensure all parties receive the same information Streamline ACMP and permit review processes

24 Review Packet & Review Initiation Review Packet & Review Initiation for the ACMP Consistency Review Process

25 WHAT? Is Required in a Complete Review Packet

26 Article 2 Review Packet Article 2 Only State Authorizations 11 AAC CPQ with consistency certification, signed and dated Detailed project description Maps, diagrams, and other site specific info Copies of required state permit applications Evaluation of how the project is consistent with the statewide standards and the district enforceable policies.

27 consistency certification: A declaration by an applicant that a proposed project is consistent with the enforceable policies of the ACMP Required for Article 2 & 4 reviews. 11 AAC Defined in 11 AAC

28 Coastal Project Questionnaire CPQ Coastal Project Questionnaire Primary differences in new regulations: Resource agencies now directed to send CPQ to OPMP if they determine a federal authorization and/or permits from more than their agency are needed. Applicant should also be directed to contact OPMP. 11 AAC Aquatic farms join placer mining operations as using joint applications with no accompanying CPQ.
