Coastal Resources Commission :: Actions from July Meeting


At its July 2008 meeting, the CRC:

  • On the recommendation of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, certified a joint Land Use Plan for Edenton/Chowan County.

  • On the recommendation of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, certified a Land Use Plan for the Town of Atlantic Beach.

  • On the recommendation of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, approved a Land Use Plan amendment for the Town of Oak Island.

  • Named Joan Weld as vice chair of the CRC.

  • Approved for public hearing amendments to 15A NCAC 7H .0308(a)(2) Temporary Erosion Control Structures, regarding the location of and time limits for removal of sandbag structures, in areas that are pursuing an inlet relocation project or large-scale beach nourishment project. The amendments also clarify that sandbags may be placed more than 20 feet from a structure when warranted by accelerated erosion.

  • Approved for public hearing amendments to 15A NCAC 7H .1200, General Permit for Construction of Piers, Docks, and Boat Houses in Estuarine and Public Trust Waters, with the addition that any reference related to SAV would state that every attempt would be made in locating these structures to minimize adverse affects to SAV.

  • Granted a variance to Joe Thompson of Dare County, who sought relief from the Commission’s general use standards for Public Trust Areas and Estuarine Waters Areas of environmental concern in order to perform maintenance dredging and excavate a new channel in the Pamlico Sound. The proposed excavation is through beds of submerged aquatic vegetation. SAV in the new channel would be transplanted from the new channel to the old, abandoned channel. The variance was granted with the following conditions: the petitioner must comply with all mitigation plans submitted by the NC Div. of Marine Fisheries and the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission; and, to the best of the petitioner’s ability, must provide notification to the public that the old channel is closed.

  • Granted a variance to Camp Albemarle (c/o Rev. Robert Vodra, director), who sought relief from the Commission’s general use standards for Public Trust Areas and Estuarine Waters Areas of environmental concern in order to remove an existing pier and 12 slips and construct a new pier with platform, 1 jet ski lift and 9 lifts (sunfish racks) that extends 572 feet into the Bogue Sound, Carteret County. The proposed development is longer than 400 feet and does not give access to deeper water at a rate of at least 1 foot each additional 100 foot increment of pier length over 400 feet.

  • Upheld an Administrative Law Judge’s ruling in the case of Kenneth and Mary Anne Sutton v. Division of Coastal Management. The ALJ affirmed the Division’s decision to issue a CAMA minor permit to a neighboring property owner.

  • Unanimously voted to extend the time for Wind Over Waves contested case to be heard at the September meeting. 

  • Unanimously voted to extend the time for Dressler/Westfall contested case to be heard at the September meeting.

  • Unanimously endorsed sandbag removal enforcement based upon the prioritization as presented by DCM staff.
