Public Notice: Ohio’s Coastal Erosion Areas (CEA) Preliminary 2018 Update

Coastal erosion designation is a component of the Ohio Coastal Management Act, passed by the Ohio Legislature in 1988 in response to the serious hazards and substantial economic losses caused by coastal erosion. A coastal erosion area is a designated area of land adjacent to Lake Erie that is anticipated to recede or be lost to erosion in 30 years unless preventative measures are taken. The laws and rules that define the CEA program are found in Ohio Revised Code 1506 and Ohio Administrative Code 1501-6. 

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is updating CEAs throughout 2018. In the maps published on January 12, 2018 the City of Euclid no longer contains any public or private property with this designation although designations indicated in the 2010 maps remain until the 2018 process is complete. Property owners affected by a CEA designation will receive separate notices. A series of public meetings have been set up to explain the designation and the process of appeals. Please be aware that the final date for initial objections to a CEA designation is May 19, 2018.

The closest meeting locations to Euclid are:
