The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Coastal Management and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore are set to host an interagency workgroup meeting Oct. 12 by web conference to discuss government authorities for managing threatened oceanfront structures.
The public may listen by computer or phone. The originally scheduled meeting was postponed due to the state of emergency issued by Gov. Roy Cooper in preparation for Hurricane Idalia.
The workgroup was established in August 2022 to engage with partner organizations and stakeholders to identify, research, and recommend policy and/or program improvements to establish more proactive, comprehensive, and predictable strategies for addressing structures at immediate risk of collapse.
The meeting is at 1 p.m. Oct. 12. Join by computer using the Webex platform. The meeting number is 2434 944 6635 and the webinar password is IWGOCT1223. Or join by phone at 1-415-655-0003, using access code: 2434 944 6635 and password: 49462812.
