At its October 2009 meeting, the CRC:
Approved an Implementation and Enforcement Plan for the Town of River Bend. The plan allows the town to act as the local permit-letting authority for activities related to minor development within Areas of Environmental Concern.
Voted that utility-grade wind energy facilities should be considered water dependent under CRC rules.
Certified a Land Use Plan Amendment for Brunswick County.
Certified a Land Use Plan for the Town of Swansboro.
Certified a Land Use Plan for the City of Havelock.
Certified a Land Use Plan for Craven County.
Granted a variance to the Town of Caswell Beach, who sought relief from the Commission’s oceanfront setback rule in order to construct a wastewater treatment system for the town. The town could not meet the “large structure” setback for a section of pipeline needed for the system.
Upheld an Administrative Law Judge’s ruling in the case of Taylor et al. v. DCM and TP Inc. The petitioners challenged the issuance of three CAMA minor permits to develop residences on three lots in Topsail Beach, partly on the basis that the first line of stable natural vegetation was not correctly judged as the vegetation had been watered and fertilized. After an extensive hearing, the ALJ concluded there was no basis to deny the permits.
