N.C. Coastal Resources Commission Will Discuss Terminal Groin Study Feb. 17
RALEIGH – The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission will discuss its study of the feasibility and advisability of the use of a terminal groin as an erosion control device and hear public comments about the study during its Feb. 17 meeting in Wilmington.
The CRC’s regular meeting will begin at 10 a.m. Feb. 17 at the New Hanover County Government Complex, 230 Government Center Drive, Wilmington. The meeting is open to the public. The terminal groin study public hearing will take place at 4:30 p.m. This is the fourth of five scheduled public hearings for the study.
The meeting will focus almost exclusively on the CRC’s terminal groin study, including discussion of a working draft report prepared by contractor Moffatt & Nichol and a discussion of potential recommendations based on the study findings. A study steering committee will present draft recommendations developed at a Feb. 15 meeting to the full commission for discussion.
The terminal groin study was mandated by Session Law 2009-479, which requires the CRC to conduct the study and present a report to the Environmental Review Commission and General Assembly by April 1.
The CRC will also vote on the following pending rule amendments:
