Hallac's first year as seashore
focus of radio show...WITH AUDIO
David Hallac, superintendent of the Cape Hatteras
National Seashore, was the guest on Sunday, Dec. 6, on "To the Point,"
the Radio Hatteras interview show hosted by Island Free Press editor
The focus was on Hallac's first year as superintendent of the Cape
Hatteras National Seashore -- what has been accomplished and what's
left on the plate for the new year.
Hallac arrived on the Outer Banks just about a year ago, just after the
U.S. Congress passed legislation as part of the Defense Authorization
Bill that mandated the National Park Service to take another look at
some aspects of the off-road vehicle driving plan that was implemented
This has been a huge undertaking for the superintendent and his staff.
The seashore was instructed to re-examine wildlife buffer distance,
re-examine and speed up some new ORV access ramps, roads, and parking
lots, and to examine some part of the final ORV rule, such as the time
beaches open in the morning, seasonal ORV routes, and vehicle-free
Congress also asked the Secretary of the Interior to give a progress
report on what has been accomplished at the seashore by Dec. 19.
In the interview, Hallac says the Park Service staff is working on the
report for Secretary Sally Jewell and that it will be delivered on time
and then made public.
He discusses different aspects of the legislation, and a few other
issues, such as stormwater issues on park land in the Buxton and Frisco
areas and the future of the Frisco Pier.
"To the Point" airs on the island's community radio station, FM 101.5,
at 5 p.m. on the first and third Sunday of each month. It is
repeated on the second and fourth Sunday. Those who don't live on
Hatteras can listen to the show on Sundays through live streaming at www.radiohatteras.org.
