KITTY HAWK - 16 Foot Road Widths

Town Council approved removing a provision in the Subdivision Ordinance that allows roadways as narrow as 16 feet in certain situations. This provision was in conflict with a 1990 amendment to the Subdivision Ordinance that created standards for “rural residential lanes” with a right-of-way of thirty feet in width, pavement 18 feet in width and compacted stone shoulders two feet on each side.

Council decided not to renew continue membership in the North Carolina Beach, Inlet & Waterways Association. They felt that the focus of the organization has shifted to advocate and lobby for beach nourishment projects which is in conflict with the sentiment of Dare voters.
