Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Marine Events and Fireworks Displays Within the Fifth Coast Guard District
Document Number: 2016-09288
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is amending the regulations established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays that take place within the Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility. This interim rule revises the listing of events that informs the public of regularly scheduled marine parades, regattas, other organized water events, and fireworks displays that require additional safety measures provided by regulations. Through this rule, the list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations or safety zones is updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Fifth Coast Guard District. When these regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. This rulemaking project promotes efficiency by eliminating the need to produce a separate rule for each individual recurring event, and serves to provide notice of the known recurring events requiring a special local regulation or safety zone throughout the year. We invite your comments on this rulemaking.
