  • APOA Letter ~ Beach Nourishment Sample Letter The comment period for the USACE emergency nourishment project to protect the sandbags at the s-curves in Rodanthe ends at 5pm on July 30th. Click on link above for a sample letter that we have been using to push out through the Replace the Bridge Committee as a sample for your use and distribution. Feedback is that there have not been many comments submitted in support from Hatteras Island. It is very, very important that we show our support for this action that was allowed under the retroactive emergency declaration by the Governor in March. As far as how to submit comments the instructions from USACE are as follows: "If comments are being submitted on behalf of an agency, municipality, or other organization, our preference is to have those submitted on letter head so that we are assured that they are truly the official position of the organization. Electronic submission of a scanned copy of a signed letter is fine." Please send scanned and signed copy to: william.j.biddlecome@usace.army.mil
