CCMP Public Comment Period Now Open

We welcome your comments on the draft revised "Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Barnegat Bay." The comment period is from July 1 to August 31, 2019.

The draft Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Barnegat Bay (CCMP) is now available for public review and comments.  We welcome your comments on the draft document during the 60-day public comment period, open from July 1 to August 31, 2019.

The CCMP is the guiding document for protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Barnegat Bay and its watershed. Our partners have been working to revise the original CCMP, approved in 2002, to reflect changes in the Barnegat Bay’s condition and emerging threats, such as climate change and sea level rise. The draft revised plan focuses on four priority areas: water quality, water supply, living resources, and land use. For each priority, the plan specifies one or more goals, several objectives, and multiple actions towards achieve those objectives.

If you would like to comment on the draft revised plan, please use this Form to submit your comments. You can enter up to four comments on the form. If you have more than four, you can submit the form multiple times. If you prefer to submit your comments as a document instead of using the form, please email the document to [email protected]. Any attachments you would like to submit in support of your comments should also be emailed to [email protected].

If you have any questions about how to comment, please contact Karen Walzer at [email protected].

Thank you for taking the time to review the draft revised CCMP and for providing your feedback!
