At its March 2007 meeting, the CRC:
Adopted for public hearing amendments to 15A NCAC 7J .0409, Civil Penalties. The changes are necessary to implement the increase in civil penalties for CAMA violations as authorized by the General Assembly.
Directed DCM staff to develop a set of policy changes for development along shorelines affected by static lines, working in concert with affected local governments and the CRC Science Panel.
Appointed Frank Rush, Town Manager for the Town of Emerald Isle, to the Coastal Resources Advisory Council.
Voted to pass a resolution stating the Commission’s opposition to federal funding for the U.S. Navy’s proposed outlying landing field in eastern North Carolina.
Granted a variance request from William and Heather Maxwell of Dare County, who sought relief from the commission’s 30-foot buffer rule in order to construct a 20-foot-wide driveway on their property in Manteo.
Granted a variance to Circa Development, Inc. of Brunswick County,who sought relief from the commission’s setback rule in order to construct a pedestrian beach accessway from an 18-lot subdivision over the frontal dune to the ocean beach. The Commission’s rules allow beach accessways within the oceanfront setback, but such structures must be located landward of the vegetation line. In this case, the property is subject to a static vegetation line located behind the frontal dune.
Denied a variance to Dunlap Forestry, LLC of Brunswick County, who sought relief from the commission’s 30-foot buffer rule in order to construct a single-family residence on a lot in Ocean Isle Beach.
- Granted a variance to the Nags Head Inn of Dare County, who applied to modify a CAMA permit to construct new, detached balconies on the west side of the property. The proposed modification would allow the balconies to be attached to the structure using cantilevers. The variance stipulates that the balconies may never be enclosed.
