Cape Look Out Extends Comment Period on Off-Road Vehicle Plan

The Cape Lookout National Seashore will extend the comment period for their Off-Road Vehicle Plan by 45 days. Jared Brumbaugh has more.

Superintendent of Cape Lookout National Seashore Pat Kenney says they received a request asking for an extension due to the impacts of Hurricane Arthur.

“We looked at the rationale that they provided in that latter and they requested the extension be granted because the hurricane came through in July and disrupted people’s lives.”

So far, Kenney says the National Park Service has received over 500 comments, with the majority in favor of a no action alternative. Individuals have until September 4th to submit comments on the draft off-road vehicle plan. I’m Jared Brumbaugh.
