Got this e-mail tonight.


Funding for Coastal Projects



February 28, 2012

Dear Neighbor,




Our beaches, waterways, and inlets are important economic engines for our coastal communities. I am pleased to share with you that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is releasing millions of dollars for coastal projects in Southeastern North Carolina.

In many conversations with Assistant Secretary Darcy and leaders at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, I have repeatedly called for additional federal support to protect the safety of our coastal residents and maintain the waterways that are vital to tourism, recreation and commerce along the Cape Fear Coast. These funds will make high impact investments to the Cape Fear Region and allow our waterways to continue to drive economic growth in Southeastern North Carolina.

With the release of funds,
the Wilmington Harbor will receive 22,000,000 dollars to finish harbor deepening to 44 feet and complete the 1996 deepening plan and 7,980,000 dollars to dredge the inner ocean bar and deposit sand on the beaches as part of the Sand Management Plan. Bald Head Island is the next community in line to receive sand under the plan.
the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway will receive 4,485,000 dollars
the Carolina Beach Inlet will receive 500,000 dollars to dredge the waterway
the Lockwoods Folly River will receive 500,000 dollars to dredge the waterway
the Masonboro Inlet and Connecting Channels will receive 6.5 million dollars to make improvements to the jetty and prevent accelerated shoaling in the inlet
the New Topsail Inlet will receive 500,000 dollars to dredge the waterway and
the Cape Fear River above Wilmington will receive 789,000 dollars.


Visitors traveling to and within the state of North Carolina spent a record 17 billion dollars in 2010, supporting over 40,000 North Carolina businesses and directly supporting 185,500 jobs all across the state. A substantial portion of this economic activity takes place along North Carolina’s ocean coast, the area most directly affected by offshore energy development. The 2011 North Carolina Beach and Inlet Management Plan Final Report found that the state’s beaches and inlets generate 3 billion dollars in revenue and directly support 39,000 jobs in coastal communities.

Tourism is the lifeblood of local economies in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties in particular. In 2009, tourism generated 353 million dollars in Brunswick County, money that went towards supporting 2,510 jobs, in New Hanover County it generated 390 million dollars to support 5,200 jobs, and in Pender County it generated 67 million dollars to support 710 jobs. Tourism creates the economic activity that keeps our communities working and thriving.

Our coastal communities deserve to have their inlets and waterways maintained, and I will continue to fight for needed investments to our coastal infrastructure. I have long been a supporter of investments to coastal infrastructure and Coastal Storm Risk Management Projects and will continue to work to provide assistance to the beaches and waterways of Southeastern North Carolina.

Sincerely,



U.S. Congressman Mike McIntyre
Representing the 7th District of North Carolina

Yeah right! they are programed to say whatever it takes to please you, we need permanent solutions (jetties/groins) not more "PORK"

I'm not taking up for politicians, I learned all I need to know about them at the rally in DC. Zigzag, you know how many times I've e-mailed his office, they called me back, and the inlet got dredged. I just posted the e-mail that I got as general info. Don't shoot the messenger. I'd like to have a jetty too, but meanwhile I'll take dredging as an alternative to an unusable inlet.

We are no longer citizens, we have allowed ourselves to become subjects.

Then the next time you have them on the line how about asking them for a more permanent and economical solution to keep our inlets open since they've had more than 12 years to think about it, I haven't had much success with him, thanks
