Description
Abstract
These data represent blocked 2004  Oceanfront Setback Factors (Results from the 2002-2003 Erosion Rate Update Study).  These polygons DO NOT represent the actual Ocean Erodible Area (OEA) boundaries as these landward limits are dynamic and can potentially change from day-to-day; the landward limit of these polygons are arbitrary.  The OEA associated with each polygon is a distance to be measured from a vegetation line to be determined by NC DCM staff or authorized local permitting official (LPO). 

Contact NC DCM for more information: 1-888-4RCOAST

Purpose
Setback Factors are used in part to determine oceanfront development setback.
