The meeting, which begins at 8:30 a.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday, is open to the public. The complete agenda is available on Coastal Management’s Web site, www.nccoastalmanagement.net.
The following items are on the CRC’s agenda:
CRC Increases CAMA General Permit Fees
At the June meeting, the CRC voted to increase the application fees for CAMA General Permits, up to $400, in order to offset the increased cost of processing the permits. This is the first increase in CAMA General Permit fees since 2000. The new fees are effective as of Sept. 1.
CAMA General Permits are used for routine projects that usually pose little or no threat to the environment, such as the construction of private piers and docks, and installation of riprap and bulkheads. The new fees are listed on DCM’s Web site, http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/cm/fees.
