Town of Nags Head, North Carolina Sand Fencing Project

The Town of Nags Head is accepting authorization letters requesting the placement of sand fence on the eastern face of the primary dune at residential properties along the oceanfront.  In order to be eligible, the sand fencing must be placed outside (westward) of the “wet sand” beach.  If a property owner is interested in participating in this multi-year project, they must submit a completed authorization letter (see below) requesting, and authorizing, this work to be done at their location.  If a citizen has any questions, they can contact the Public Works Director, at 252-449-4203.

Funds for this project are being provided by the Dare County Shoreline Management Commission.  The work will begin in early January 2008, and continue in future fiscal years as funds are made available.  Work in upcoming years may also include the planting of beach grass to stabilize dunes created, or enlarged, by the new sand fencing.
