have been responding to a large
number of accidents over the past

Coastal Resources Panel Keeps Sea Wall Ban
BY DOU(J R UTTER
North Carolina's ban on sea
walls, jetties and groins is alive and
well for ihc time being.
The N.C. Coastal Resources
Commission made no changes to the
six-year-old rule prohibiting ero
sion-control structures that "harden"
the beach when it met last week in
However, commissioners did
agree to consider a proposal that
would simplify the process of ask
ing for an exception to the rule, said
Jcannette Johnson, spokesperson
with the N.C. Division of Coastal
Commissioner Dan Bcssc's pro
posal would allow those seeking a
variance to skip an administrative
hearing before state officials and pre
sent their case directly to the CRC.
The coastal panel didn't vote on
the proposal last week. It will likely
be discussed when the CRC meets
in Wilmington in September, Ms.

In recent months, however, some
of the panel's members have said
the rule is too strict and there should
be a procedure to allo^ exceptions.

proposal in March that would allow

Ms. Johnson said the coastal pan
el took no action on two other pro
posals that went to public hearing
One of the rules would make
coastal property owners promise to
remove or demolish their homes if
they become threatened by erosion.
About 25 people spoke in favor
of the idea at the hearing, Ms.
Johnson said, and the commission
received more than 1 30 letters sup
porting the plan.
The CRC didn't vote on a pro
posal to allow maintenance dredg
ing in shellfish beds, coastal wet
lands and submerged vegetation.
Ms. Johnson said CRC members
decided to see how a recent rule
change that allows maintenance
dredging in primary nursery areas
works before they include other ar

Sabbath Home Road (S.R. 1 120).

broken wheel cylinder. No charges
Damage to the vehicle was esti
mated at approximately S5.000.
Calabash Renames Roadways
At least a dozen streets in Cala
bash have been renamed to avoid fu
ture confusion for emergency scrvicc
personnel responding to 91 1 calls.
In order for the 911 system to be
activated, every street with three or
more homes must have a name, said
Lee Hitchcock of the Brunswick
County Planning Department.
"The county docs not have juris
diction within the city limits, but we
have worked with the Calabash
Planning Board and the Property
Owners Association of Carolina
Shores in renaming the streets,"
Identical street names and names
with the same first word have been
changed, he said, so that in the
event of an emergency, rescue
members can get there as quickly as
Some streets that have been re
named include River, McLamb and
Carter Road and any streets begin
ning with Calabash.
All Calabash streets have been
renamed as necessary, he said.
