Public meetings scheduled on beach driving plan

Posted March 24, 2010 4:09 p.m. EDT

— Cape Hatteras National Seashore will hold a series of public meetings next month to present a draft plan for beach driving. The plan, expected to be complete next spring, would outline access for off-road vehicles at the seashore over the next 10 to 15 years.

The plan is the latest attempt to balance environmental concerns and recreational access along the federally protected coastline, including the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Bodie and Ocracoke islands.
