Miriam Rollins, a Duck HOA Forum member from the Plover subdivision, asked that I pass along to you a petition (see attached) to the Town opposing additional vehicular traffic on the beach coming from a new Town-sponsored ocean access point at Barrier Island.
If you have a concern over additional vehicular traffic on the beach and agree with the language in the petition, you can email your agreement to Miriam (email@example.com) or you can email your comments/questions directly to the Town Council members (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
The Town Council will be discussing this issue at their regular monthly meeting on Wednesday (11/2), so it's important to communicate any concerns/questions you may have before then.
Feel free to CC me on any email you may send if you like.
The CDA Board is reviewing this and will probably also send an email to the Town.

Dear Duck Forum Members,
Miriam Rollins, a Forum member from the Plover subdivision, asked that I pass along to you her string of emails with the Town regarding several issues associated with (1) future vehicular traffic on the beach at Barrier Island, (2) access to the beach to support beach nourishment this year and (3) the Army Pier refusal to allow much Town access to the beach at the pier.
I think the biggest and most pressing issue at this time is issue #2, future vehicular traffic on the beach at Barrier Island. I think the Town has already signed an agreement with Barrier Island to fund and construct a beach access point that will support beach nourishment and also allow Barrier Island owners and guests to drive on the beach during the off-season, So, I think the agreement to fund and construct the access point is a done-deal at this point and therefore not subject to much discussion.
What I think is still open for public input and discussion are the Town rules that would control vehicular traffic on the beach. I think the Town Council will be discussing this at the November Council meeting and at the Town Retreat in Jan/Feb.
If you have comments or feedback on any of the issues in the string of emails below, especially regarding vehicular traffic on the beach, you are encouraged to directly communicate that to the Town Council and Town Manager. Their email addresses are included in Miriam's email below. Feel free to CC me on any email you may send if you like.
Beach nourishment in Duck will be starting soon. The Town just provided the following details:
Weeks Marine has updated the beach nourishment schedule for Duck. Actual construction is now expected to begin in late October with an estimated project duration of 30-35 days. Staging is expected to begin this Wednesday, October 19 with the Installation of the subline near North Snow Geese Drive. The access point to the beach for mobilization of the equipment is in Southern Shores. Please exercise caution as heavy equipment will be moving up the beach from the Duck town line to the construction area.
Please note that this schedule is tentative and subject to change based on a number of factors, including weather conditions, equipment issues, and other extenuating circumstances.
For more information on the project please visit our more beach to love website.
Regular Trash. The off-season regular trash collection is now back to one time each week, which are Mondays. So, regular trash will now be picked up on Mondays and none on Fridays.
Recyclable Trash. The off-season recyclable trash will begin Nov 1st and will be back to the 1st and 3rd Mondays each month starting then. For October, the recyclable collections will remain every Monday.
As a reminder, let's help our neighbors when we are in Town by rolling back their trash cans (at least 10-15 feet up their driveways) if you can. Having fewer empty trash cans on the street will improve the appearance of our streets.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
