On January 2, 2014, Pedro J. Bonilla, representing Cangrejos Yacht Club (CYC), filed notice of an appeal with the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart H. The appeal is taken from an objection by the Puerto Rico Planning Board (PRPB) to CYC's certification of consistency of a proposed dredging project in the Boca de Cangrejos Channel in Carolina, Puerto Rico. The certification indicates that the project is consistent with Puerto Rico's Coastal Management Program. The project would affect the natural resources or land and water uses of Maryland's coastal zone. Notice of the appeal was published on March 12, 2014.

The CZMA requires that a notice be published in the Federal Register indicating the date on which the decision record has been closed. 16 U.S.C. 1465(b)(2). The decision record is to be closed within 160 days of the notice of the appeal; however, the Secretary of Commerce may stay the closure of the record, for a period not to exceed 60 days. 15 CFR 930.130(a). The Secretary must issue a decision no later than 60 days after closure of the decision record. 15 CFR 930.130(b).
