Security Zones; G8/North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Summit, Chicago, IL
Document Number: 2012-5330
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-03-06
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish four separate security zones on both the waters and waterfront area of Chicago Harbor and the Chicago River. These proposed temporary security zones are intended to restrict vessels, regardless of the mode of propulsion, and people from certain land and water areas in Chicago Harbor and the Chicago River during the G8/NATO Summit and associated events, which will be held in Chicago from May 16, 2012, through May 24, 2012. These security zones are necessary to protect visiting government officials and dignitaries from the potential dangers, including terrorists threats, associated with a large scale, international political event.
