Permit Application Public Notices

Public involvement is a key element of the Corps’ permit review process. During an application review, the USACE, Regulatory Division considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. This is accomplished through the posting of a Public Notice on the USACE, Regulatory Division's website and soliciting comments.

The USACE, Regulatory Division publishes monthly a list of individual permits issued, denied, or pending during the previous month. The list will identify each action by public notice number, name of applicant, and brief description of activity involved. It will also note the relevant environmental documents and the Statements of Findings (SOF) or Records of Decision (ROD) that are available upon written request through the FOIA process and, where applicable, upon the payment of administrative fees.

  • POA-2006-442-M10, Tanana River

    Expiration date: 4/4/2016

    PURPOSE: The applicant, The Fairbanks North Star Borough, Parks and Recreation Department’s stated purpose is to expand recreational public use areas to adequately accommodate the number of visitors. Since opening the beach in the summer of 2014, the swim beach has been an enormous success. Busy days at the beach attract over 600 patrons. A single parking area and entry point leads to a congested beach area just south of the parking lot. Limited parking spaces are available and overflow parking occurs on both sides of Northlake Lane, making it difficult for patrons to drive to other portions of the park. The purpose of the channel is to promote water circulation through the end of the swimming inlet, create additional shallow water habitat, and enhance the visual aesthetic of the area. Comments on the described work, with the reference number, should reach this office no later than the expiration date of this Public Notice to become part of the record and be considered in the decision. Please contact Melissa Riordan at (907) 474-2166, by fax at (907) 474-2164, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
