As owners of Albemarle Contractors, Inc., Joe and his wife Lori have spent the last 30 years developing and constructing properties on the Outer Banks. Joe is a former Director of the Chicahauk HOA Board of Directors, and is a current Director on the Board of the Throwdown Charity Surf Classic held annually in Southern Shores. Joe and Lori have two children.

Karen Sykes, resident of Chicahauk Trail, has lived in Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores for 35 years. Karen has been involved in both a retail business and a construction business located in Southern Shores. She has raised three sons (avid surfers) in Southern Shores and is currently in real estate sales with Century 21 Nachman Realty.

6/26/17 **The street contractor has informed the Town it will need to actually close traffic today through tomorrow as the last act of paving for the Juniper Trail improvement project. Signs will go up as before when the street is closed.
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.
