Council Seeking Public Input

The Southern Shores Town Council’s Public Safety Committee (Mayor Bennett and Councilman MacDonald) has recommend to Council the removal of traffic stop signs at the following street locations:


  • Two (2) stop signs on East Dogwood Trail at its intersection with Hickory Trail

  • Two (2) stop signs on Chicahauk Trail at its eastern intersection with Clam Shell Trail
  • Two (2) stop signs on Hickory Trail at its intersection with Hillcrest Drive


At its September 6, 2016 regular meeting, the Council deferred further discussion on the 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 , 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.
