UPDATE: NPS sets public meetings
on infrastructure improvements

The National Park Service will conduct two public meetings to provide the basic information and to hear questions and comments regarding the proposal to improve infrastructure to provide new access points and to facilitate public access in Cape Hatteras National Seashore. 

Public meetings are scheduled as follows:
  • Tuesday, July 16, on Hatteras Island at the Avon Fire Hall from 3 until 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 17, on Ocracoke Island at the Ocracoke School from 3 until 6 p.m.

This open house format meeting will provide an opportunity to view maps and information and interact with park staff who will answer questions.  The general public is invited to attend.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore has released its proposal to facilitate additional public beach access environment assessment to the public last week. A public comment period opened July 1 and runs through Aug. 2.
