Hurricane Florence - Mandatory Evacuation Issued

Image
At this time, we regret to inform you that Dare County Emergency Management has called for a mandatory evacuation of Hatteras Island beginning today, September 10, 2018 at 12:00, noon.  
View full press release here: https://www.darenc.com/Home/Components/News/News/5184/1420

We are very sorry to have to see you leave. Keep in mind, this decision to evacuate was not made lightly. Our local government has decided we are in danger. Remember we only have one way off the Island (NC HWY 12) and if it is breached we have no way on or off the Island. This can happen even before the storm. 
Time is of the essence in an evacuation and the roads will become very congested as the day progresses. By law, the beach is closed as soon as the evacuation takes effect. High tide is around 9pm tonight and we are already experiencing overwash in Pea Island- travel is safest in daylight. 
We ask that you be ready to evacuate no later than 3 hours from when the official evacuation begins at 12:00, noon. Thi…

Golf Carts Come to Buxton

Image
Golf carts have become a popular way to get around the island. In recent years, Hatteras Village has been able to accommodate street legal golf carts on Highway 12 and side streets within the village. This has made for a fun way to travel to and from rental houses to your favorite destinations.

On Monday, Dare County Board of Commissioners approved the use of street legal golf carts in the village of Buxton. Carts are not permitted to travel on or across Highway 12, but are allowed on streets where the speed limit is 35mph or less.

Currently golf carts are allowed in Avon (permitted on certain streets), Waves (permitted on 2 streets), and Hatteras Village (permitted on Highway 12 and other roadways within the village).
