Lawrence B. Goldstein, Wetlands Administrator

Old Armory Building
11 Bladen Street
Annapolis 21401 Telephone: 269-2664

Chapter 241 of the Acts of 1970 requires that
anyone wishing to dredge or fill in State wetlands
must first secure a license from the Board of Pub-
lic Works. In order to fulfill the responsibilities
assigned to it by the statute the Board has
appointed a Wetlands Administrator. The duties
of this office include the receipt of applications,
as well as scheduling and conducting the required
public hearing. After holding the hearing and
considering all other information relevant to the
application, the administrator then prepares a
written report to the Board of Public Works, in-
cluding a recommendation as to whether or not a
license should be issued and if so under what

terms and conditions. The approved license is
also issued by this office.

The Wetlands Administrator coordinates all as-
pects of the program with other State, local, and
federal agencies, as well as environmental groups
and the general public (Natural Resources Arti-
cle, sec. 9-202).


Francis J. Aluisi, Permits Coordinator

Old Armory Building
11 Bladen Street
Annapolis 21401 Telephone: 269-2666

The Permits Coordinator is appointed by the
Board of Public Works in compliance with Chap-
ter 553, Acts of 1975. The Coordinator is re-
quired by law to have available copies of all rules
and regulations and all application forms adopted
or used by various State agencies with respect to
the issuance of permits. He must advise persons
proposing projects of the various permits that
may be required and is to furnish to the appli-
cants the relevant information concerning the re-
quired procedures for obtaining these permits.
The Coordinator must cooperate with each State
agency having authority to issue a permit in de-
veloping a master application form and appropri-
ate appendices for use in applying for multiple
permits. When more than one State agency is re-
quired to issue a permit for a specific project, a
consolidated hearing is held and the Coordinator
presides over the consolidated hearing. In addi-
tion to consolidated State hearings, the statute
provides for joint hearings with local governmen-
tal agencies. The Coordinator also has the au-
thority to make inquiry as to the reason for any
delay or denial of a permit (Code 1957, Art. 78A,
secs. 56-67).
