Topsail Island Shoreline Protection Commission (TISPC) in conjunction with the North Carolina Resilient Coastal Communities Program (NC-RCCP) are exploring options for a potential project for the entire island which would bring Surf City, Topsail Beach, and North Topsail Beach together for an equitable approach for coastal resilience.
Representatives from all three towns have been meeting to discuss potential projects based on the needs of Topsail Island as a whole as a benefit to all three towns and their communities.
The project team has already conducted four workshops with the Community Action Team (CAT), as well as a Public Open House event (December 2021). The team is progressing towards another Public Open House event in late February 2022. It will be held at the Surf City Town Hall (214 W. Florence Way, Hampstead, NC 28443). The event will be held in-person, with virtual attendance options available. This Open House event will be an opportunity for the public to engage with this project and assist the CAT in prioritizing projects for future funding and implementation.
