Information Regarding Cape Hatteras National Seashore ORV Final Rule

 

The final special regulation (rule) for the management of off-road

vehicle

(ORV) use at Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Seashore) was published in

the Federal Register on January 23, 2012 and becomes effective on

Wednesday, February 15, 2012. The rule designates ORV routes and

authorizes ORV use at the Seashore in a manner that will protect and

preserve the unique natural and cultural resources of this dynamic

barrier

ecosystem while permitting the use of vehicles on Seashore beaches and

provide a variety of safe visitor experiences while minimizing conflicts

among various users. Under National Park Service (NPS) general

regulations,

the operation of motor vehicles off of roads within areas of the

National

Park System is prohibited unless authorized by special regulation.

 

To provide more information about the rule and its requirements, the NPS

has prepared a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) information sheet and a

map

showing designated ORV routes as well as pedestrian areas where ORVs are

not authorized. The FAQ and map are now available on the Seashore's

website located at: http://www.nps.gov/caha

 

When the rule becomes effective on February 15, 2012, an ORV permit will

be

required to operate a vehicle on the designated ORV routes at the

Seashore.

Permits can be obtained beginning on February 15 at any of the three NPS

ORV permit offices located at Coquina Beach, the Cape Hatteras

Lighthouse

Visitor Center (Buxton), and the Ocracoke Visitor Center. These offices

will be open year-round, seven days a week, except Christmas Day, from

8:00

a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with expanded hours on weekends and holidays during

the

summer season. The cost of an annual permit (valid for the calendar

year)

is $120. A 7-day ORV permit (valid from the date issued) will cost $50.

 

In order to provide the public with ample time to obtain a permit, there

will be a transition period between February 15 and March 15 before the

rule is fully implemented and enforced. During the transition period,

the

NPS will install new ORV route markers and information signs and begin

implementation of the species management measures that were identified

in

the December 2010 Record of Decision for the Seashore's Off-Road Vehicle

Management Plan / Final Environmental Impact Statement. Visitor contacts

during the transition will focus on informing the visiting public about

the

ORV permit and other beach driving requirements under the special

regulation.

 

For more information, see the FAQ posted on-line at:

http://www.nps.gov/caha; or call 252-473-2111 ext. 148.

ya know I dont mind a permit really........I pay or have paid for permits in a dozen places, IBSP, Assateague, Long island, Nauset, etc.............but the part that I struggle with here is the permit gets me nothing really........where can I fish? south end of ocracoke? false point, oregon inlet, hatteras inlet? seems to the places I want to fish I cant at the whim of some bird. I also belevie the no being on the beach over night regualtion is extened to nov 15? So there goes fall drum season..........I just dont see the point of even going honestly which was the intent all along of the bird people.

 

I hate to say I told ya so, but agreeing to the consent and decree or what ever it was called pretymuch ended acess for us. the groups that supopsedly suport acess.....well lets just say wow great job, great result. :freak:

 

Oh I guess ill still make a fall pier trip but who knows.......

I'm not putting my house up fo sale yet, and I will buy a permit but this year will make me or break me, i've supported the cause thru NCBBA, and OBPA but times are HARD down here and we can't lose the income from our out of town fishers if nps doesn;t bend on the point and the inlets.
