Shoreline Licensing For Riparian Property Owners Closes June 1
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds waterfront property owners who wish to apply for shoreline licensing that applications must be received by June 1, in order to retain preferential treatment. Anyone owning riparian property must license their shoreline for the purpose of establishing stationary blinds or blind sites for hunting waterfowl, or to prevent others from licensing the shoreline at a later date. Persons with the permission of the riparian property owner are also eligible to apply for shoreline licensing.
Riparian property owners may license their shoreline for a period of one year for a $20 fee, or three years for a $60 fee. Landowners who miss the June 1 deadline may participate in the “open” licensing process that begins Aug. 5, 2008.
For an application and information visit http://www.dnr.maryland.gov/wildlife/riparian.html, or call 410-260-8540 or 1-877-620-8DNR (8367).
