At its September 2008 meeting, the CRC:
Adopted amendments to 15A NCAC 7H .0306 General Use Standards for Ocean Hazard Areas, to tie beachfront building setbacks to the size of the structure, and not the use, and to allow beachfront communities an opportunity to apply for an exception to a static line when the community has a long-term beach nourishment program.
Adopted amendments to 15A NCAC 7J .1200 Static Line Exception Procedures, which outlines the procedures to be used by communities seeking an exception to the static line.
On the recommendation of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, denied certification of a Land Use Plan Amendment for the Town of Carolina Beach.
On the recommendation of the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, approved a Land Use Plan Amendment for Currituck County.
Granted a variance to the Town of Kure Beach, who sought relief from the Commission’s oceanfront setback rules in order to construct a dune infiltration system at the existing ocean outfall at K Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in Kure Beach.
Granted a variance to the Wilmington Light Infantry Club of New Hanover County, who sought relief from the Commission’s ocean hazard rules to replace an existing docking facility with a new fixed pier, gazebo, and floating docks. The proposed development exceeds a combined total area of four square feet per linear foot of shoreline
Granted a variance to the North Carolina Aquarium, who sought permission to construct an ocean fishing pier and educational public pier facility on the oceanfront at the site of the old Janette's Pier. The proposed development does not meet the following rules: (1) the pier house, pump house and bath house do not meet applicable oceanfront erosion setbacks, (2) the proposed 2.5-story pier house exceeds the existing height limit in the CRC’s rules.

The Coastal Federation had contested the Division’s wetlands delineation on the property.
