Duck Beach Nourishment Project One Step Closer

The Duck Town Council conducted a public hearing on Wednesday, March 4th 2015, to consider the establishment of two Municipal Service Districts (MSD A and MSD B) related to the Town of Duck Beach Nourishment Project.

Following the close of the public hearing, the Town Council discussed the issue and voted unanimously to approve establishing of the two MSDs using proposed model of funding referred to as the 20-40-40 formula, 20% to be paid through the Town’s General Fund (no additional tax will be levied by the Council), 40% to be paid by oceanfront property owners and 40% to be paid by non-oceanfront property owners.

In May of 2013, consultants engaged by the Town of Duck, Coastal Planning and Engineering of North Carolina (CP&E), completed an “Erosion and Shoreline Management Feasibility Study” for the Town.

According to the plans developed by CP&E, approximately 1,061,200 cubic yards of beach compatible sand will be placed from an offshore borrow source in the project area by use of dredge. The project is estimated to cost around $14.6 million.
