Based on these two actions, and the requests and recommendations of fishing and environmental interests, the department initiated the process for amending the state’s Territorial Sea Plan through a phased approach. The initial phase was to development a new chapter for the plan that contained policies, review and evaluation standards, coordination process, and operational plan requirements for ocean renewable energy development. That was completed in November 2009 when the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) adopted Part Five of the Territorial Sea Plan for the Development of Renewable Energy Facilities or Other Related Structures, Equipment or Facilities based on the recommendation of OPAC and the Commission’s Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee.
