The new Cape Hatteras National Seashore Superintendent David Hallac is scheduled to attend the Ocracoke Civic and Business Association (OCBA) monthly meeting tonight (Wed. Feb 11) at 7 p.m. in Community Center to meet the community and answer questions.
Other issues on the agenda include
–An update on getting fireworks for the 4th of July holiday
–A brief overview by Kris Noble, Hyde County development officer, of a proposed Tourism Development Authority for Ocracoke. Noble also will attend a public meeting of the Occupancy Tax Board at 7:30 Thursday night (Feb. 12) in the Community Center, but this is to give islanders another chance to hear about this if they can’t attend Thursday’s gathering.
The Office of Planning and Economic Development study analysed the current promotion efforts paid through occupancy tax funds and suggests potential plans for improvement. Public comment is specifically sought from people involved with the lodging industry, tourism promotion, and the Ocracoke Civic & Business Association.
–An update on Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree
