The Hyde County Office of Planning and Economic Development and the county manager’s office will hold a public meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2, in the Ocracoke Community Center to discuss potential improvements to Pamlico Sound access on Ocracoke Island.

The community is encouraged to attend and provide  input regarding possible options for improved public access to the sound.

County officials are particularly interested in suggested sites for new sound side access, or enhancements to existing access points, including amenities for a variety of uses.

Hyde County has invited the National Park Service to join the discussion.

Dave Hallac, superintendent of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, has confirmed he will attend and provide feedback regarding options presented by the public.

The Community Center is at 999 Irvin Garrish Hwy.
