Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for all navigable waters on Pensacola Bay within 100 yards of each vessel participating in the Tall Ships Pensacola marine event and parade in Pensacola, FL and within 100 yards of the Port of Pensacola for the duration of the marine event and parade. The proposed rulemaking is necessary to provide for the safety of life and property on these navigable waters during the Tall Ships Pensacola marine event. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from entering the safety zone unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Mobile (COTP) or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

Document Number: 2018-03624
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend its safety zones regulations for annual events in the Captain of the Port Duluth Zone. This rule would update the locations for seven safety zones, add three new safety zones, increase the safety zone radius of six existing fireworks events, and modify the format of the regulation to list the annual events and corresponding safety zones in table form. These proposed amendments would protect spectators, participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with annual marine events and improve the clarity and readability of the regulation.
