Craven County is hosting a virtual public meeting to present information and gather feedback on proposed options to improve the county’s resilience to coastal hazards, such as flooding and storm-related damage.
The meeting is set for 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10. It is expected to begin with a brief presentation followed by a chance for participants to ask questions and provide input to project representatives on the current risks and needs to be addressed.
To register contact Planning Department Assistant Director Chad Strawn at firstname.lastname@example.org, Senior Planner Jason Frederick at email@example.com. or call 252-636-6618.
This meeting is a part of the North Carolina Resilient Coastal Communities Program. Craven County, along with about two dozen other local governments in the 20 Coastal Area Management Act, or CAMA, counties, were awarded the grants in March 2021 through the Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Coastal Management, which manages the program.
The program was created to help local governments develop projects that would increase resilience to coastal risks and address critical infrastructure needs. Public input is a key part of the process to determine what improvements are most important to the community.
Those unable to attend the virtual public meeting can participate by answering by March 24 an online survey at https://arcg.is/0fiDrL.
