National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management is requesting comments on the preliminary findings and draft environmental assessment for a request from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for approval of amendments to the Puerto Rico Coastal Zone Management Program (PRCZMP). NOAA has determined that the amendments to the PRCZMP do not meet the requirements for approval.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Kerry Kehoe, Federal Consistency Specialist, Office for Coastal Management, NOAA, at 240–533–0782 or kerry.kehoe@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The federal Coastal Zone Management Act provides incentives to states and U.S. territories to develop programs to manage coastal resources and uses. The PRCZMP was approved NOAA in 1978. Since that time, statutory and regulatory changes have been made to the organizational structure of the land use agencies which comprise the PRCZMP; the land use authority of local governments; and the permit decision-making process. These changes are in force and being implemented as laws of the Commonwealth pursuant to the Puerto Rico Permit Process Reform Act of 2009 (Law 161), as amended by Law 151 of 2013, and pursuant to the Autonomous Municipalities Act of 1991 (Law 81). In order to demonstrate that the program continues to meet the requirements for program approval established under the Coastal Zone Management Act and its implementing regulations, the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources has submitted these changes to NOAA for approval. Copies of the Commonwealth’s submission are available on the Regulations.Gov Web site under the Docket No. ‘‘NOAA–NOS–2016–0148.’’ NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management has determined that these changes are substantial and should be reviewed as a program amendment in accordance with 15 CFR part 923, subpart H. NOAA held a public hearing on the amendment in San Juan, Puerto Rico on September 2, 2015. The focus of the hearing was on whether the PRCZMP continues to meet the requirements for program approval as E:\FR\FM\13DEP1.SGM 13DEP1 89888 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 239 / Tuesday, December 13, 2016 / Proposed Rules specified in the Coastal Zone Management Program regulations at 15 CFR part 923. In addition to the hearing, NOAA solicited written comments from the public on the amendment. NOAA is issuing preliminary findings on the request for approval of the amendments to the PRCZMP. Although most of the changes to the PRCZMP have been found to be approvable, NOAA has found that the fast-tracking of the permitting process does not provide a meaningful opportunity for public participation in the process. NOAA has also identified concerns with the placement of permitting authority in authorized professionals. These preliminary findings are subject to change pending a response from the Commonwealth, and comments from the public. NOAA has also completed a draft environmental assessment pursuant to the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act for this review.
