April 2005 Coastal Resources Commission Actions
At its April 2005 meeting, the CRC:
Adopted for public hearing an amendment to 15A NCAC 07H.0304 to remove the unvegetated beach designation from oceanfront areas in New Hanover, Pender, Carteret, and Onslow counties.
Adopted for public hearing an amendment to the commission’s rule that prohibits concrete driveways in the oceanfront setback (15A NCAC 07H.0309). The proposed rule would allow the use of concrete, asphalt or turfstone for driveways in the oceanfront setback so long as the development does not directly abut the ocean and is located landward of a paved public street or highway currently in use.
Adopted amendments to 15A NCAC 7A, 7H, 7I, and 7J, designating Coastal Management’s Morehead City office at its new address at 400 Commerce Ave. in Morehead City as the Division’s main office.
Adopted for public hearing an amendment to NCAC 7O.0105 to add the Bird Island and Emily and Richardson Preyer Buckridge Coastal Reserves to the list of sites included in the N.C. Coastal Reserve complex.
On the recommendation of the Planning and Special Issues Subcommittee, the commission voted to certify a Land Use Plan for the Town of Duck.
Denied a variance to Henry Sneed of Carteret County, who sought relief from the commission’s rule requiring a 60-foot setback from a pre-nourishment vegetation line to build two single-family residences on four adjacent oceanfront lots in Atlantic Beach.
Granted a variance to B&D Investments, LLC of New Hanover County, who sought relief from the commission’s riparian setback rules to construct a pier on a property in Wrightsville Beach.
Denied a variance to Larry and Sonja Powell of New Hanover County, who sought relief from the commission’s 30-foot buffer rule to build a two-level deck on a single-family residence in Carolina Beach. The proposed deck would have exceeded the limit of 200 total square feet of decking allowed within the buffer.
Denied a variance to Wayne and Susan Lehman of Dare County, who sought relief from the commission’s 30-foot buffer rule to build a single-family residence in Frisco.
Granted a variance to the Riggings Homeowners Association at Kure Beach, which sought to keep the sandbags protecting the structures in place until June 30, 2007. On that date, the FEMA grant awarded to the Town of Kure Beach to acquire the current Riggings site will expire.
