Council Seeking Public Input

Recommended Circle Drive Speed Limit Change

The Southern Shores Town Council’s Public Safety Committee (Mayor Bennett and Councilman MacDonald) has recommend to the Town Council that it authorize the increase of the speed limit on Circle Drive from 15 mph to 25 mph.

At its September 6, 2016 regular meeting, the Council deferred further discussion on this recommendation until its regular meeting of November 1, 2016 at 5:30 PM to allow for further public input, both in writing and by verbal comment. Written comments may be submitted to the Town Council by email to council@southernshores-nc.gov , by US Mail to 5375 N. Virginia Dare Trail, Southern Shores, NC 27949, or by delivery to the Southern Shores Town Hall.  Any citizen may also verbally comment on this specific matter upon Council’s resumed deliberation of the recommendation at its November 1, 2016 regular meeting at 5:30 PM in the Pitts Center, 5377 North Virginia Dare Trail, Southern Shores, NC.

Change in Beach Nourishment Schedule – Nourishment of the Kitty Hawk/Southern Shores beaches is now scheduled to commence in early August. Given the haul distance from Borrow Area A to KDH is significantly shorter than the distance to KH, GLDD is strongly considering constructing KDH before they do Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores. The shorter distance is more conducive to the smaller dredges and they want to maximize their production while the Dodge and Padre are on site.
