CRC Actions from May 2013
At its May 2013 meeting, the CRC:
Adopted amendments to 15A NCAC 7I .0401 &7I .0406 Minor Permit Program. The amendments would make some technical corrections to the rules.
Approved for public hearing amendments to 7H .2600 Wetland, Stream and Buffer Mitigation Permit, to expand this general permit authorization to cover projects undertaken by private sector organizations.
Approved for public hearing amendments to 7H .1300 GP to Maintain, Repair and Construct Boat Ramps Expanded Activities in order to simplify the permitting process and reduce the costs for applicants seeking to construct non-commercial boat ramps and associated structures. The amendments would alleviate the need to apply for three separate general permits for each of the associated structures.
Directed staff to clarify options that might be available to address a clarity issue in 15A 7J .0210 Replacement of Existing Structures, regarding whether a dwelling and its associated septic tank should be treated as one structure or two structures with regard to the CRC’s repair/replacement rule. – get motion from Angela
