  What is this and why do I care? Coastal Project Review  

2. What criteria does the ACMP use to evaluate my project?

The ACMP applies to projects within or affecting Alaska's coastal zone. The statewide standards (11 AAC 112) and coastal district enforceable policies of the ACMP provide direction for coastal resources and uses, such as:

    • coastal development (whether a project is water-dependent or water-related),
    • habitats (such as wetlands, tideflats, or streams),
    • air, land, and water quality,
    • transportation and utility routes and facilities,
    • timber harvest,
    • mining and mineral processing,
    • subsistence opportunities,
    • recreation designations,
    • geophysical hazard areas,
    • historical and archaeological resources,
    • energy facilities, and
    • fish and seafood processing.

Using the statewide standards and local enforceable policies, the ACMP evaluates the effects a project will have on the above coastal resources and uses. Projects must be consistent with the requirements found in the standards and enforceable policies.
