CHAPTER 55 - COASTAL BARRIER RESOURCES

-HEAD-

Sec. 3501. Congressional statement of findings and purpose

-STATUTE-

(a) The Congress finds that -

(1) coastal barriers along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and

along the shore areas of the Great Lakes of the United States and

the adjacent wetlands, marshes, estuaries, inlets and nearshore

waters provide -

(A) habitats for migratory birds and other wildlife; and

(B) habitats which are essential spawning, nursery, nesting,

and feeding areas for commercially and recreationally important

species of finfish and shellfish, as well as other aquatic

organisms such as sea turtles;

(2) coastal barriers contain resources of extraordinary scenic,

scientific, recreational, natural, historic, archeological,

cultural, and economic importance; which are being irretrievably

damaged and lost due to development on, among, and adjacent to,

such barriers;

(3) coastal barriers serve as natural storm protective buffers

and are generally unsuitable for development because they are

vulnerable to hurricane and other storm damage and because

natural shoreline recession and the movement of unstable

sediments undermine manmade structures;

(4) certain actions and programs of the Federal Government have

subsidized and permitted development on coastal barriers and the

result has been the loss of barrier resources, threats to human

life, health, and property, and the expenditure of millions of

tax dollars each year; and

(5) a program of coordinated action by Federal, State, and

local governments is critical to the more appropriate use and

conservation of coastal barriers.

(b) The Congress declares that it is the purpose of this chapter

to minimize the loss of human life, wasteful expenditure of Federal

revenues, and the damage to fish, wildlife, and other natural

resources associated with the coastal barriers along the Atlantic

and Gulf coasts and along the shore areas of the Great Lakes by

restricting future Federal expenditures and financial assistance

which have the effect of encouraging development of coastal

barriers, by establishing the John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier

Resources System, and by considering the means and measures by

which the long-term conservation of these fish, wildlife, and other

natural resources may be achieved.

result of natural forces.

(d) Additions to System

The Secretary may add a parcel of real property to the System, if

-

(1) the owner of the parcel requests, in writing, that the

from the Secretary a determination as to whether and what portion

of the property constitutes an undeveloped coastal barrier. Not

the Secretary shall make and publish notice of such

determination. Immediately upon issuance of a positive

determination, the Secretary shall -

(FOOTNOTE 1) See References in Text note below.

portion of such property; and

(B) publish in the Federal Register notice of the addition of

revision.

(g) Guidelines for certain recommendations and determinations

(1) In general

In making any recommendation to the Congress regarding the

addition of any area to the System or in determining whether, at
