North Carolina Final Recommended Maps

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) submitted proposed maps for Units L05, L06, L07, L08, and L09, along with 65 other units, to Congress in 2008 as part of the Service’s Digital Mapping Pilot Project. These draft maps make progress towards fulfilling a mandate in the Coastal Barrier Resources Reauthorization Act (P.L. 109-226) to modernize all CBRS maps and make recommendations for the expansion of the CBRS.

The Service has made modifications, as appropriate, based on public comments, updated aerial imagery, CBRA criteria, and objective mapping protocols for these maps.  The Service’s final recommended maps for Unit L06 (which includes the southern segment of Unit L05) are dated November 20, 2013. The Service’s final recommended map for Units L07, L08, and L09 are dated March 12, 2014.

The final recommended maps for these units were submitted to Congress with the Service’s testimony at a legislative hearing before the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans, and Insular affairs on April 8, 2014. The final recommended maps will become effective only if they are enacted by Congress through legislation.
