Coast Guard, DHS.
Notice of proposed rulemaking; notice of public meeting and reopening of the comment period.
The Coast Guard announces a November 20, 2014 public meeting to receive comments on a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Anchorage Regulations: Subpart A—Special Anchorage Areas, Marina del Rey Harbor, California ” that was published in the Federal Register on May 28, 2014. As stated in that document, the Coast Guard proposes to disestablish the special anchorage area at the north end of the main channel in Marina del Rey Harbor, California. This proposed action would remove the anchorage area from Coast Guard regulations. This proposed rule would not prevent vessels from anchoring in the harbor during storms, stress, or other emergency situations. We have reopened the comment period which will now end November 28, 2014.
A public meeting will be held on Thursday, November 20, 2014, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Marina del Rey, CA to provide an opportunity for oral comments. The comment period for this rulemaking is reopened through November 28, 2014.
The public meeting will be held at the Burton W. Chace Park Community Room, 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey, CA 90292, telephone 310-305-9595.
