Two years ago, the Wetlands and Coastal Dune Board (Board) spent several months preparing a set of recommendations to manage sand and the dunes at the beach. Those recommendations
were presented to Town Council in September 2016. Recently the Board has been working on a proposed beach and sand management practices plan for the Town’s public beach. The draft
proposed plan outline is attached. Upon further review and discussion, recommendations will be sent to the Town Council.
A review of the past and currently employed beach sand management practices was held Monday, which afforded members of the community to review the plans and add input into the scale of the sand wind erosion problem and potential practices to mitigate future wind erosion events.
Ann Walker and the board have been working very hard on this project, but they still need your help. Your comments are a very important part of the project, and the board needs citizen input before finalizing the draft that will go to the Town Council.
Citizens should send their comments to Tracy Outten, the clerk for the CC Wetlands and Dune Board no later than Oct. 12, 2018, however they would prefer them sooner if at all possible:
