The Charlotte Harbor NEP proposes a two part strategy for facilitating this review process. The first and primary strategy is to encourage early coordination and review of projects that potentially conflict with or further the goals of the CCMP. The purpose of the early coordination step is to identify if and where conflicts exist and to explore options for resolving those conflicts at the earliest possible opportunity. The second strategy is to incorporate the existing federal consistency review process of the State Clearinghouse and Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP). These offices coordinate federal consistency reviews in Florida. On Tables 1 and 2 the Charlotte Harbor NEP identifies the types of federal activities and programs it wishes to review, and will receive specific proposals within these categories from the FCMP via the three Regional Planning Councils (RPCs) covering the Charlotte Harbor NEP Study Area; Tampa Bay RPC, Central Florida (CFRPC) and Southwest Florida (SWFRPC). The Charlotte Harbor NEP will determine if the activity is consistent with priority goals and objectives of the CCMP. If concerns arise, comments will be sent to the FCMP through the representative RPC, which accumulates all comments from local governments and forwards them to the FCMP.
