John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System; Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project for Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia
The Coastal Barrier Resources Reauthorization Act of 2006 requires the Secretary of the Interior to prepare digital versions of the John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) maps. We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, have prepared proposed digital boundaries for the second batch of CBRS units included in the Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project. This second batch of the project includes a total of 310 CBRS units (256 existing units and 54 proposed new units) located in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York (Long Island), Rhode Island, and Virginia. Though the Massachusetts units were included in the first batch of this project, a minor portion of Rhode Island Unit D01 in this second batch is located in Massachusetts. This notice announces the availability of the proposed boundaries for public review and comment, and also advises the public of upcoming public meetings that will be held via webcast and teleconference.
