About this Collection

This library collection contains archived documents and materials for the proposed boundaries for the CBRS units included in the Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project and provided to the public through comment periods held in 2018 and 2019.

The Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project modernizes the maps of the Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) units in the nine states along the North Atlantic coast most affected by Hurricane Sandy: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York (Long Island), Rhode Island, and Virginia. This project makes progress toward fulfilling the statutory requirement to modernize the entire set of CBRS maps (Pub. L. 109-226).

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prepared proposed boundaries for the CBRS units included in the Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project and provided the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed changes through comment periods held in 2018 and 2019. An archive of the proposed boundaries and associated documents is available at the bottom of this page. The proposed changes described in these archived materials have been superseded by the changes recommended in our 2022 report to Congress on the Hurricane Sandy Remapping Project.
