Please take our public survey about flooding here locally! 

The Town of Edenton is developing a Resilience Strategy as part of the 2023-2024 Resilient Coastal Communities Program (RCCP), a program administered by the North Carolina Division of Costal Management and funded by the N.C. State Legislature and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. This project will evaluate current and future costal flood risks and vulnerabilities and identify ways to adapt and become more resilient to flooding.

RCCP Overview

RCCP focuses locally on 20 coastal counties under the Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) and provides a formalized planning process that supports communities in ultimately developing shovel-ready resilience projects.

The program consists of four phases:

1. Community Engagement & Risk/Vulnerability Assessment

2. Planning, Project Identification, & Prioritization

3. Engineering & Design

4. Project Implementation

Edenton has received support for Phases 1 and 2.
