Coastal Resources Commission To Meet April 28 & 29 in Morehead City
RALEIGH State coastal policy makers next week will address issues such as beach nourishment sand compatibility, erosion rate setbacks and a general permit for construction of riprap sills.
The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission will conduct its quarterly meeting on Wednesday and Thursday, April 28 and 29, at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City. The meeting, which begins at 8:30 a.m. each day, is open to the public.
The following items are on the CRCs agenda:
· Beach nourishment and vegetation setbacks (I&S Committee, 1:15 p.m. Wednesday) Staff will present the results of a survey of how other states approach building lines and setbacks on nourished beaches. At the January CRC meeting, a request was made that the commission reconsider its rules requiring the use of the vegetation line that existed immediately prior to the construction of large-scale beach nourishment or spoil deposition projects to determine oceanfront setbacks after the project is completed.
The Coastal Resources Advisory Council, a group that provides the CRC with local government perspectives and technical advice, will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, at the Civic Center.
