The Dare County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution to permanently close a paved portion of Seagull Street in northern Rodanthe at their September 6 meeting, allowing homeowners in the immediate area the ability to move their homes westward, and away from the ocean.

The proposal was introduced at the board’s August 1 meeting, where Noah Gillam, Dare County Planning Director, presented 12 affidavits from Seagull St. homeowners requesting the adjustment.

“It’s from my understanding, talking to several of the homeowners and the HOA President, that the homeowners are all planning on moving their houses westward, to prevent either damage or losing the house,” said Gillam at the August 1 meeting. “So this will give them an opportunity to at least extend their [home’s] life a little longer.”
