Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Events in Northern New England
Document Number: 2011-173
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-01-11
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend special local regulations and to establish permanent safety zones in the Coast Guard Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone for annual recurring marine events. When these special local regulations or safety zones are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule would restrict vessels from portions of water areas during annual events listed in TABLES 1 and 2 that pose a hazard to public safety. The revised special local regulations and safety zones are proposed to reduce administrative overhead, expedite public notification of events, and to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with firework displays, boat races, and other marine events.
