30 YEAR BEACH MANAGEMENT PLAN ADOPTED APRIL 2015
During the April 14, 2015 Board Meeting, the Board of Commissioners adopted the Ocean Isle Beach 30-Year Beach Management Plan. The management area will consist of the beach strand from the location of the proposed terminal groin project, located on the east end of the island, to the east shoulder of Tubbs Inlet, a total distance of 5.1 miles.
Components of the study include an engineering analysis of the existing federal project, a sand resource assessment , and an assessment of the environmental documentation and permitting requirements that would be necessary for the Town to manage its entire ocean front shoreline.

UPDATE APRIL 10, 2014
We are pleased to report that the Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Project has now been completed. Post project surveys have not yet been performed but it is estimated that the Town received over 800,000 cubic yards of sand as a result of this project. Additional sand was also placed on the eastern end of the island as part of the Corps annual Waterway crossing project. The Town would like to express their appreciation to the US Army Corps of Engineers, Weeks Marine and Southwind Dredging for their participation in this successful project.
