Nags Head finally approves docking for restaurant patrons

By on February 9, 2019

Nags Head commissioners have approved a request that would allow restaurants along the sound to provide docking for up to four boats.

Docking will be limited to patrons of restaurants.

Planners worked out details of the zoning change after Miller’s Waterfront Restaurant and Tale of the Whale put in the request over a year ago.

In August of 2017, the Board of Commissioners turned down a request by Miller’s and Quible & Associates engineering to allow up to 10 boat slips for commercial businesses in the Outdoor Recreation Overlay District, which runs roughly down U.S. 158 from the Soundside event site and around the bend to the Manteo Causeway.

Last month, Commissioners voted to table the proposal until February so that the planning staff could address additional questions and whether it is consistent with the Land Use Plan.

The revised proposal would limit docking to restaurants in the district rather than the 15 businesses the original version would have included. It also reduced the number of slips per dock.
