NC - Southern Shores seeks public input on beach nourishment

Deadline for submitting comments is June 12

The Southern Shores Town Council is currently considering a beach nourishment project and would like to hear your thoughts about whether move forward with a beach nourishment project in 2022 prior to holding a Public Hearing on the matter on June 16 at 9:00 a.m. in the Pitts Center, located at 5377 N.

The potential project may be funded through tax assessments which may include Municipal Service Districts and/or a Town-wide assessment that could potentially range from an additional $100 to around $3,000 to your tax bill depending on the value of your property, the location of your property, and its proximity to the ocean.

Please submit your comments no later than June 12, 2020 to info@southernshores-nc.gov or mail them to Town of Southern Shores, 5375 N. Virginia Dare Trail., Southern Shores, NC 27949.

The June 16, 2020 Council Workshop meeting will be open to the public and available by zoom. The mass gathering restriction under EO141 does not apply to or limit the number of members of the public who may attend an in-person government board meeting and encompasses government officials, staff, and members of the public.
