I seen this while reading my NAFC magazine, and thought it was a little interesting. It doesnt say to much. but u who live there might be interested in it.

"orth Carolina: The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, in cooperation with the Town of Bellhaven, will receive more than $155,000 and match that amount with the same to construct approximately 900 linear feet of docking access for visiting boaters to provide access to the local community and safe harbor mooring" (NAFC Staff)

Yes, and what they didnt say is it is probably going to be along the only as of yet un-developed strecth of property right as you come into town which the family who owns it is in the works of selling to Developers just like Washington did with their "public" walkway that now has 400K condos 3 stories high all over it ..... neat little trick to get the city to pay for making an area more marketable to private developers... Now all the pretty historic homes can't be seen from the water and have lost their value and ambience....

Back in '99, I lived between Washington and Belhaven. In September, when Hurricanes Dennis and Floyd came through, all of those nice boat slips on the riverfront in Washington were several feet under the water. Most of that area was flooded. Tracy Warren had to sandbag his store to keep the water out...and he's a block away!

Hope all those 400K condo buyers read the old newspapers!

Somewhere, I have a bunch of pictures from that little episode!
