COMISLI-^N..^xvS I“iE:TING: On January 19, 1977, the Commissioners voted unani
mously to accept the ordinance providing for the use and control of all
waters and structures related to their use v/ithin the Town limits and off
shore, A well attended public hearing on the proposed ordinance was held
January 13* I'inor changes \'/ere discussed, some of which were incorporated
in the ordinance. The ordinance is on file at the Town Hall, Some of the
regulations pertain to safe handling of boats. No boat shall be operated
at such speed as to leave a harmful wake in any channel or canal nor shall
speed th,.re exceed five miles per hour. All structures alongside, in, on,
and above the waters shall be maintained in good condition from the stand
point of safety and appearance, shall cause no obstruction, shall not impede
the flow of water, and shall be maintained acdording to the tovm Building
Code. "Signs may be placed or erected by the Tovm or by either of the
Home Ovmers Associations so as to inform users of the waters regarding rules
and regulations and restrictions..." Skiing and surfboarding behind boats
is prohibited in the canals, channels, and boat basins of the To\-m and in
Bogue Sound v/ithin three hundred feet of the .shoreline or the town. Boats
may not be tied up to bridge pilings, posts, or markers giving directions
or rules of use.
Of particular interest to oimers of lots along the canal is the new require
ment for bulkheading. This reads, "No house shall be built on any lot
which is in either Category I, II, or III of the Report of Henry Von Oesen
8c Associates to Pine Knoll Association, Inc., dated Aug.,1976,.. unless
and until such lot shall have been bulkheaded; provided, however, that
should the ov/ner. . .believe that his ]property not require bulkheading, he
may apply to the Board of Adjustxiient for a variance. The Board of Adjust
ment is authorized to grant such a vari .ce in those instances, but only in
those instances, where it finds that the applicant’s lot does not need
bulkheading in order to prevent erosion or sedimentation into the waterv/ay
it abuts."
"Adopted this the 19 day of January 1977 by a
vote of 5 for Sind 0 against and 0 absent. The
Town of Pine Knoll Shoros, K.L. Haller, i-iayor"
