Draft Regulations

In 2013 the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 524 that gave local governments the option to allow certain nonwater-dependent uses on piers. Senate Bill 524 amended §16-104 of the Environment Article and §8-1808.4 of the Natural Resources Article.

The Commission is reviewing draft regulations concerning nonwater-dependent structures. The purpose of these regulations is to incorporate into the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) the nonwater-dependent projects provisions found in the Environment Article and the Natural Resources Article so that local planners and the public can find the requirements in one place in the regulations.
