Next Public Meeting for Plan NHC
After months of meetings, the six citizen led theme committees have drafted policies to move forward with the creation of a Comprehensive Plan for New Hanover County. On Monday, August 12, 2014 Plan NHC will hold a public meeting at the Historic NHC Courthouse Downtown from 4:00PM-7:00PM to review the recommendations and gather input from citizens. STAN is still keeping a careful watch over any future changes to the Special Use Permit and the Plan NHC process is your opportunity to be involved with the county’s planning process. Let officials know how you think New Hanover County should develop over the next 20+ years by attending the meetings and voicing your opinion. For more info visit the Plan NHC website or see the latest Action Alert.

Bobcats, and turkeys, and bears, oh my!
The North Carolina Coastal Federation, Cape Fear River Watch and the Wildlands Network set up 20 wildlife cameras around Castle Hayne and the NE Cape Fear near the proposed Titan site. Staff regularly monitors the cameras and you’ll be amazed by some of the birds and animals have posed for some action shots.
