Second Round of Post-Sandy Boundaries Out in Draft Form
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prepared draft revised boundaries that propose modifications to the Coastal Barrier Resource System in Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia. If adopted, the proposed boundaries would remove 787 acres from the current system while adding approximately 141,072 new acres to the system. Due to the partial government shutdown, the virtual public meetings were canceled but there is a video online with additional information.
