Star-News | Wilmington, NC Where to draw a line in the sand

Offered for your information is a better explanation of why the post-nourishment static vegatation line is getting attention.
"State considering new setback rules for beach houses" The state agency that sets coastal policy is mulling over a rule change that could open hundreds of oceanfront lots, including dozens on Oak Island and Ocean Isle Beach, to development. (snip)
(CRC Chairman Courtney) Hackney said he hopes any change in the rule creates a “realistic” line that reflects the facts on the ground, especially in areas that are regularly nourished, while still offering sufficient protection for homeowners building in a naturally unstable environment.

I will stick by my previous comments and add only that I agree it is a slippery slope and one that we need to be very careful about.
