I would like to see the pier extended. But with what I saw in the plan I need alot more info before I can support this project. The price seems high to begin with. I talked to the owner of the Rodanthe pier about what it cost to build the new pierhouse and rebuild the pier. The numbers just don't seem right for the ADA and extention(both have to happen). Alos alot of the work that they were asking for seemed to be maintence. I hope it gets done. Maybe if they involve the regulars out there they can get it done for less.
The pier buys a fishing license every year that allows patrons to fish the pier WITHOUT a license, or at least thats the way I understand it.
The fee charged by the pier, $3.00, is the the least amount charged by any of the area's commericial piers . My understanding was that 1/2 of this money was being allocated to the beach replenishment fund - or so I was told.
Yeah, they're still looking at extending it, but money is tight and its going to be a battle to get funds approved. I hope that they do, I've caught lots of nice fish off the end of that ol' pier. Seeing it lengthened and a "T" added on the end would be the ticket!!
