Virginia Administrative Code
Title 4. Conservation And Natural Resources
Agency 20. Marine Resources Commission
Chapter 360. Criteria for the Siting of Marinas or Community Facilities for Boat Mooring

4VAC20-360-40. Policy.

A comprehensive siting review process for boat mooring facilities requiring permits from the commission is necessary to insure that permit decisions comply with statutory requirements and the legislative mandate that our natural resources be maintained and conserved for present and future generations. All public and private interests will be carefully considered in this review. As the size, density, complexity and range of services offered by a proposed facility increase, so shall the detail in design and implementation of best management practices in its siting, construction and operation. Minimizing adverse environmental impacts shall be the ultimate goal in all phases of planning, siting construction and operation. Furthermore, the acquisition of shellfish leases which may be affected by a seasonal shellfish closure around a proposed facility will be given no weight and absent mitigating circumstances will be viewed as a negative factor by the commission in its evaluation of the facility.
