FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brett Grosko, Attorney-Adviser, NOAA Office of the General Counsel, 301–713– 7384. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Appeal The Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority (PRHTA) has filed a notice of appeal with the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart H. The PRHTA appealed an objection raised by the Puerto Rico Planning Board to a consistency certification contained within its application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a permit necessary to reconstruct a stone revetment and replace a bridge at Aguadilla Bay. The Appellant requests that the Secretary override the Puerto Rico Planning Board’s consistency objection on the basis that the proposed activity is ‘‘consistent with the objectives’’ of the CZMA. To make this determination, the Secretary must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in section 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial manner; (2) the adverse effects of the proposed activity do not outweigh its contribution to the national interest, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the activity VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Oct 25, 2005 Jkt 208001 to be conducted in a manner consistent with enforceable policies of Puerto Rico’s management program. 15 CFR 930.121. The Appellant also requests that the Secretary override the Puerto Rico Planning Board’s consistency objection on the basis that the proposed activity is necessary in the interest of national security. To reach this conclusion, the Secretary must find that a national defense or other national security interest would be significantly impaired were the activity in question not permitted to go forward as proposed. 15 CFR 930.122. II. Public and Federal Agency Comments Written public comments are invited on any of the issues that the Secretary must consider in deciding this appeal. Comments must be received within 30 days of the publication of this notice, and may be submitted by e-mail to prhighway.comments@noaa.gov. Comments may also be sent to Brett Grosko, Attorney-Adviser, NOAA Office of the General Counsel for Ocean Services, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1305 EastWest Highway, Room 6111, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Comments will be made available to the PRHTA and the Puerto Rico Planning Board. III. Appeal Documents NOAA intends to provide the public with access to all materials and related documents comprising the appeal record during business hours, at the NOAA Office of the General Counsel for Ocean Services. In addition, copies of public filings by the parties will be available for review at the offices of the Puerto Rico Planning Board.
