Coastal Resources Commission to Meet June 23 & 24 in Greenville
RALEIGH The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission will consider three rule proposals during its quarterly meeting Wednesday and Thursday, June 23 and 24, in Greenville. The meeting, which begins at 8:30 a.m. each day, is open to the public.
The CRC is considering the following proposals:
· Unvegetated Beach Areas This amendment would temporarily designate a section of ocean shoreline in Dare County as an unvegetated beach area. This is an area that was damaged by Hurricane Isabel on September 18, 2003. The unvegetated beach designation will re-establish a development setback line for this area that will be used to determine where structures can be (re)built.
· Enclosure of Porches within the Oceanfront Setback This amendment will clarify (a)(5) of 7H .0306 such that the enclosure of existing roof-covered porches in the Ocean Hazard AEC will only be permitted landward of the first line of stable, natural vegetation.
The following items are also on the CRCs agenda:
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, June 22, at the Hilton.
