The vision of the Ocean Isle Beach Land Conservancy is for the island, its residents, the general public and Town of Ocean Isle Beach to be in balance and in harmony with nature, containing as much protected green and open space as possible.
The mission of the Ocean Isle Beach Land Conservancy is to enrich the island through acquisition of conservation easement of open and natural areas, conservation education and the promotion of good land stewardship. The Conservancy aspires to bring together citizens and landowners, natives and newcomers to set aside lands for conservation and public recreation. The Conservancy will become an informed resource on island ecology.
The intent of the Ocean Isle Beach Land Conservancy is to establish public, town-park and green space areas throughout the island, providing public and handicap access to nature, natural views, and recreational opportunities consistent with the family atmosphere enjoyed on the island. A list of possible island locations follows:
●Undeveloped (unplatted) land, marshland, and wetland north, west and east of Shallotte Boulevard.
●A central park
●Land for walk-paths and gazebos to provide scenic lookouts
●East end oceanfront-erosion damaged lots
●Spoil area north of Lee Street
