The appeal is taken from an objection by Puerto Rico Planning Board to Pan American's consistency certification filed in conjunction with an application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a permit to construct a new marine leg, leg storage platform, and service walkway in San Juan Bay, Puerto Rico. Notice of this appeal was published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2010. See 75 FR 8919.

The Secretary is required under the CZMA to close the decision record for an appeal no later than 220 days after notice of the appeal is first published in the Federal Register. See 16 U.S.C. 1465(b). Once the decision record is closed, the Secretary is prohibited from considering any additional information, briefs, or comments not previously submitted and made part of the decision record prior to closure. Id.

Consistent with these requirements, the appeal decision record for the federal consistency appeal filed by Pan American closed on October 4, 2010.
