Free Parking Permits—Emerald Isle taxpayers are eligible to receive two annual free parking permits for the Eastern and Western Ocean Regional Access. Parking pass applications will be available in person beginning Saturday, April 1, when you can apply at the Emerald Isle Police Department at 7500 Emerald Drive. You will need a current vehicle registration(s) and driver’s license when applying for your permit. You will receive an email when your pass is ready for pickup.
These parking permits will be granted only for vehicles registered in the name of the taxpayer and are non-transferable. The permit decal must be for the current year and be permanently affixed to the driver’s side windshield.
Paid beach parking will begin on April 15 and will run through September 15. Paid parking will range from $2-$4 per hour, with a maximum amount paid up to four hours. If you have questions, please call EIPD at 252-354-2021.
Coyotes have been seen in the park the week of October 3. Last year someone one lost a cat, and the week of October 3, someone lost a dog. If you see a coyote, do not approach it. Do not let your animals out unless they are leashed.
Pervious Stepping Stones or Pavers
To be considered pervious, stepping stones or pavers must be spaced at least two inches apart over a base of ¾ to 1½ inch diameter stone laid at least 3 to 4 inches thick over a pervious material (such as landscape fabric). Pictured here is an example of pervious pavers. Stepping stones or pavers not meeting these criteria will be treated as impervious and will need approval from the Pervious Allocation Committee prior to installation. Payment for the impervious coverage will be required.
Thanks to Dave Brown for the Little Library!
A big thank you to Dave Brown building and installing a Little Library at the Park entrance. A Little Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book and leave a book. You do not have to leave a book to take one.
West Gate Closed
The west entrance gate is closed from October 24 until April.
About 125 trees have been planted along Highway 58 and between the Park and Flip Flops, and drip irrigation lines have been added.
Please do not cut or trim these trees. Also, please do not walk between the trees as a shortcut to enter or exit the Park. Anyone who damages the trees by cutting, trimming, or walking between them will be held responsible for the cost of replacing them.
