Beach Commission

The purpose of the Carteret County Beach Commission is to identify and develop plans, strategies, and programs to restore and maintain wide sandy beaches and dunes through environmentally sensitive beach nourishment, dune management, vegetation management, and sand management principles. The Board is committed to obtain funding at the federal, state, and local level for beach nourishment and storm protection that will prevent and mitigate further erosion of the existing shoreline. The Board supports policies and procedures that comply with all federal, state, and local requirements. The Board will strive to develop prudent management strategies for sustaining the productivity and economy of our coastal land and seascapes.
