Shoreline Licensing For Waterfront Property Owners Closing Soon
Deadline for Applications is June 1
Annapolis, MD (May 6, 2010) — The Maryland Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) would like to remind riparian (waterfront) property owners who
wish to apply for shoreline licensing that their applications are due by mail
June 1. Anyone owning riparian property or people who possess permission of the
riparian property owner, may license their shoreline for the purpose of
establishing stationary blinds or blind sites for hunting waterfowl, or to
prevent others from licensing the shoreline at a later date.
Riparian property owners may license their shoreline for a period of one year for a $20 fee or three years for a $60 fee. Landowners who miss the June 1 deadline may participate in the “open” licensing process that begins Aug. 3, 2010.
For an application and information visit http://www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/Licenses/riparian.asp or by call 410-260-8540 or toll free at 1-877-620-8DNR (8367).
