Get a look at two alternatives for ferry terminals to provide service to Cape Lookout National Seashore in a public meeting at the Duke University Marine Lab Auditorium on Pivers Island at 7 to 9 p.m. next Tuesday.
The National Park Service is planning passenger ferry service from either 10th Street in Morehead City or from Front Street in Beaufort to Shackleford Banks and to the Cape Lookout Lighthouse area of South Core Banks.
Officials will announce the preferred departure site Tuesday as part of the draft Passenger Ferry Departure Site Environmental Assessment/Assessment of Effect, the National Park Service says.
The study examined eight potential sites since last August, and each site's characteristics and requirements, including accessibility issues and opportunities for partnering with the Towns of Beaufort and Morehead City, the NPS news release says.
The public can comment on the EA/AoE from March 1 until March 31.
Comments by mail may be sent to: Wouter Ketel, Management Assistant, Cape Lookout National Seashore, 131 Charles Street, Harkers Island, NC 28531.
