NLC News: NLC Wins Standing in NHESP Appeal for Surfside Crossing 40b

The NLC is delighted to have been granted party status by the MA Department of Fisheries and Wildlife in the NLC’s appeal of the MA Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program Determination for the Surfside Crossing proposed comprehensive permit project.  This was a hard won fight.  The NLC has been actively working to protect rare and endangered species habitat on Nantucket for 45 years and this decision recognizes the NLC’s legal right to ensure that the Island’s rare and endangered species receive all the protections afforded by law.  We intend on pursuing our long established rights—now solidified by this important decision—with regard to the Surfside Crossing proposed project and elsewhere on the Island.
