NC - Southern Shores votes to pursue beach nourishment project

After many months of discussion, the Southern Shores Town Council unanimously decided to pursue a beach nourishment project at their meeting on June 16.

This will be the first time the town engages in such a project; they will join their neighbors, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk and Duck in a nourishment project for the year 2022.

After Ken Wilson with Coastal Protection Engineering joined the meeting via zoom on Tuesday, the council inquired about several aspects of the proposal with their chosen beach engineering firm.

Wilson was ready and willing to help and move forward with plans, if the board so chose: “If you ask us a fair question, we are going to give you a fair answer.”
