Right of Way Project

RIGHT OF WAY PROJECT

The Town of Surf City is currently working on policies to address cleaning up right of ways (ROW) as Council and staff continue working to improve life throughout Town.  This will be a large project and will require your assistance once we begin implementation. Staff has spent many months preparing to ensure proper planning and organization is in place prior to the launch of the project.  As part of the planning process, the Town will offer several public meetings in order to address the concerns of the community.  It is vital that we tackle this project together for the least amount of disruption to our town. Cleaning up our right of ways will be completed in phases to reduce the burden on property owners and to ensure we assess each area with the appropriate considerations.  We plan to begin this project later this year in late Fall and early Winter, upon the conclusion of all public meetings.  The Town will also be addressing any right of way issues on town-owned properties prior to implementing any policy changes.

In emergency situations our first responders need adequate clearance to proceed through traffic and assist those in need. Have clear right of ways supports quicker and safer response during emergencies.




Parking Management 


Until recently the Town did not limit parking within the right of ways, along with the limitation of parking the Town has increased the amount of parking available. With the addition of paid parking, visitors can only park in designated spots. During the season Parking Ambassadors actively monitor these areas to ensure visitors are parking within the designated locations. In the past, property owners placed items to deter parking between the pavement and their property. Property owners can report violations to the Parking Management company should they continue to persist.
