Association Leads Training of Federal, State and Local Leaders on Beach Protection

CAROLINA BEACH, NC—“It’s going to take all of us working together to solve this problem,” said Senator Michael Lee as he welcomed leaders from the region at Beaches 101, a course provided by the Association to educate leaders on the science behind and reasons for beach re-nourishment. Dr. Nicole Elko provide the training to an audience that included Congressman David Rouzer, Representative Ted Davis, Jr., Representative Elect Holly Grange, New Hanover County Commissioner Woody White, and Kure Beach Mayor Emilie Swearingen. 

“This was a great course, and should be done throughout the state,” said North Topsail Manager Stuart Turille.

The program began with two hours of classroom instruction that included the following five subjects:

·        How Beach & Inlets Work: A basic primer on coastal processes

·        Erosion Management Spectrum: Options from retreat to armoring

·        Beach Re-Nourishment: Sediment, dredges & environmental considerations

·        Dunes, Retreat, Regulations, Sand Rights & Creative Funding Options

·        Funding Options for Beach Re-Nourishment

This was followed by a joint presentation on the Association’s efforts to build a statewide coalition for state dedicated re-nourishment funding by Willo Kelly, Outer Banks Association of Realtors Government Affairs Director and Shane Johnson, Association COO. The effort has been dubbed the Coalition for NC Beaches.

“We’ve secured dozens of signatures from area leaders,” said Willo Kelly, “And we’ve just begun!”

“This is the first time the entire local delegation has uniformly agreed on anything for a long time,” said Lee.

The Association is planning to work with NCAR and the NC Homeowners Alliance to continue building momentum for the effort.
