The agenda is as follows:
Public Hearing (public testimony will be heard)
Federal Consistency Determination CZM0009-23(FC), has been submitted by the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA). WAPA proposes the burial of utility lines in Estate Hannah’s Rest, Frederiksted, St. Croix. The proposed federally funded underground project will install underground ducts with manholes, pad-mount transformers and other underground devices to replace existing overhead distribution lines.
Major CZM Permit Application, CZX-11-18(L), has been submitted by VIGL Operations LLC (VIGL). VIGL proposes to modify Major CZM Permit CZX-11-18(L) by reducing the scope for the reconstruction and improvements to the Randall “Doc” James Racetrack Project. The modified scope will reduce the size of the grandstanding building, paddock, stalls, stables and parking area. The project site is located at Section 5 Estate Manning Bay, St. Croix, Virgin Islands.
The applications are available for public review on the DPNR-CZM websites: https://dpnr.vi.gov/coastal-zone-management/what-we-do/coastal-zone-permitting/ and https://dpnr.vi.gov/coastal-zone-management/what-we-do/federal-consistency/.
