Every five years, the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) requires state Coastal Management Programs (CMPs) to identify challenges and enhancement opportunities within each of nine enhancement areas. The Office for Coastal Management within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration works closely with state CMPs to prioritize and evaluate state program needs and develop strategies to improve its operations. Public and stakeholder involvement is an important part of this process. A draft CZMA Section 309 Assessment and Strategy for 2021-2025 is available on the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources’ (MDMR) website, www.dmr.ms.gov, for public review. The document can be found under the Public Notice section on the MDMR homepage. Public comments on the draft are encouraged and will be accepted through March 10, 2020. All comments should be mailed to Robin Zantow, MDMR, Office of Coastal Resources Management, 1141 Bayview Avenue, Biloxi, MS 39530 or emailed to Robin Zantow at email@example.com and delivered by 5:00 p.m. on March 10, 2020.
