Oregon Coastal Management Program Enforceable Policies
 
The federal Coastal Zone Management Act requires that federal actions affecting any use or resource of a state’s coastal zone, including projects authorized by specified federal licenses or permits, must be consistent with the enforceable policies of a State’s federally approved coastal management program. Oregon’s approved program, the Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP), is administered by the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD), and is a “networked” program that integrates authorities of local governments and other state agencies.  In order to be consistent with the OCMP, the proposed project must be consistent with enforceable policies contained within three program components: the statewide planning goals, applicable acknowledged local comprehensive plans and land use regulations, and specific state agency authorities. Please see the table “Enforceable Policies of the Oregon Coastal Management Program” for a detailed list and links to the text of specific enforceable policies.
 
NOTE: DLCD provides this table as a quick reference guide for the Oregon Coastal Management Program’s Enforceable Policies.  However, to verify what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has specifically approved as enforceable policies, please refer to NOAA’s approval letters in the table below and/or contact DLCD.
