    Policy Memos

    Memos

    • 06/04/21 Shoreline Management Program Permit and License Issuance
      To improve the efficiency of the Shoreline Management Program and ensure consistent processing of Shoreline Use Permit requests and associated real estate instruments, the attached memorandum directs MSCs to provide a single transaction procedure for decisions for Shoreline Use Permits and associated real estate instruments. The outlined process must be adopted no later than 1 October 2021.

      The intent of this memorandum is to align the evaluation and timing of decisions for both Shoreline Use Permits and real estate instruments. The result will provide applicants greater clarity on the terms and duration of the permit and real estate instruments and improve USACE procedures by establishing a uniform issuance cycle.

      The points of contact for this initiative are Jeremy Crossland, Program Manager for Land Use and Natural Resources, (202) 761-4259 or Jeremy.M.Crossland@usace.army.mil and Bobby Roberts, Deputy for Real Estate, (202) 761-0057 or bobby.l.roberts@usace.army.mil.

      Respectfully,

      Tom
      Thomas P. Smith, P.E., SES
