FROM CFCOG: Sunny Point Joint Land Use Study Public Meetings

11.26.2018

The Cape Fear Council of Governments (CFCOG) is preparing a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) in conjunction with Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU), along with New Hanover County and Brunswick County and the municipal governments of Boiling Spring Lakes, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Leland, and Southport. The purpose of the JLUS is to identify potential land use conflicts around the installation and the Army’s railroad corridor from Sunny Point to Leland that might impede the long-term sustainability of its operational mission. The completed study will include recommendations for MOTSU and the local government partners to consider implementing to mitigate any land use conflicts that are identified, improve communication between the installation and local governments, and identify other ways in which Sunny Point and its local partners can work collaboratively on issues of mutual interest.

On Tuesday December 4th, the JLUS study partners will hold public meetings in Boiling Spring Lakes and Carolina Beach to provide updates on the progress of the JLUS. The consulting team and MOTSU staff will present information on development trends, military explosives safety requirements, land use compatibility, and an overview of the range of strategies available to mitigate compatibility concerns and enhance cooperation between MOTSU and its local government partners. The public is invited to attend one of the meetings at the times and locations provided below. A final round of public meeting will be held at the conclusion of the study (Spring 2019).  For additional information on the Sunny Point JLUS, please visit: http://capefearcog.org/sunnypoint/
