The N.C. Coastal Resources Commission will meet Thursday and Friday, Jan. 27 and 28 in Wrightsville Beach at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort, 275 Waynick Boulevard. The meeting, which begins at 8:30 a.m. each day, is open to the public.

The following items are on the CRC’s agenda:

The proposed amendment would allow riprap to extend a maximum of 10 feet in front of existing bulkheads, while the current rule allows for placement of riprap to a maximum of five feet only.
    • The second hearing is for the CRC’s temporary rule (15A NCAC 07H .2700), which established a General Permit for the construction of riprap sills for the protection of existing, created or restored wetlands. Permits for riprap sills were previously available only through the Major Permit process. The CRC proposes to make this rule permanent.
