2022 Project Update

The Town of Nags Head is currently planning a beach nourishment project related to 2019's Hurricane Dorian, with construction possibly taking place in the summer of 2022. Watch the update given to Nags Head's Board of Commissioners at their December 16, 2020 meeting.

Beach Nourishment Easements

Since October 2019, the Town has been working to acquire perpetual easements for oceanfront properties located either south of 8827 South Old Oregon Inlet Road or between 2919 South Virginia Dare Trail and 5317 South Virginia Dare Trail. These properties have 10-year beach nourishment easements that will expire April 1, 2021.To ensure the properties remain protected by these critical projects, we must have the perpetual easements in place well PRIOR to the 2022 project. 

Thank you to those owners who have returned the perpetual easements for their property. You can view your easement by visiting Dare County's GIS web site and conducting a search using your name or the property's address. Once your property's parcel information is available, click on Land Transfer. This will list any recently recorded easements on your property. 

Properties from 8827 South Old Oregon Inlet Road through 5317 South Virginia Dare Trail have perpetual easements obtained by Dare County and transferred to the Town of Nags Head prior to the initial beach nourishment project in 2011.
