Park Service to Hold Hearings on Beach Access

April 27, 2010

The National Park Service is holding public hearings to gather comments on its plan for managing access to a portion of North Carolina's Outer Banks.

The park service said on its website that a hearing on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan and Environmental Impact Study will be held on Tuesday at the Wright Brothers National Memorial First Flight Centennial Pavilion in Kill Devil Hills.

Hearings are also scheduled for Wednesday in Raleigh and Thursday in Hampton, Va., for tourists who don't live along the beach.

When the plan is completed, it will be in effect for 10 to 15 years.

Efforts to find a balance between recreational use of the seashore and protection of its wildlife has provoked strong feelings on both sides.
