DCM hosts Compliance Assistance Workshop June 8 in Washington
On June 8, the state Division of Coastal Management compliance and enforcement representatives Lynn Mathis and Kimberly Hedrick will host a compliance assistance training workshop from 8:30 a.m. – noon in the hearing room at the DENR Washington Regional Office.
This workshop will give participants a program overview, review the division’s recent rule changes, and provide assistance to the public to promote compliance of the Coastal Area Management Act and the State’s Dredge and Fill Law. Our goal is to provide this workshop to the public annually, and 2010 is our first year to offer the training.
The primary goal of this workshop will be to provide contractors, consultants, surveyors, local government officials, real estate agents, land owners and managers, and any other interested parties with an overview of the N.C. Division of Coastal Management program, recent rule changes, and an opportunity to have open discussion on any questions or concerns from the public. At the workshop, attendees can get copies of rules, information on the N.C. Division of Water Quality’s Tar-Pamlico River Basin Buffer Rules, and brochures on the Property Owner’s Guide to Determining the Most Appropriate Shoreline Stabilization Method.
Attendees may obtain up to three hours of PDH credit from attendance of this workshop. This event is free and includes coffee and snacks. Certificates will be handed out at the end of the workshop.
