Findings
• Dare , Hyde , Tyrrell and Washington counties and the towns of Duck , Kill Devil Hills , Kitty Hawk , Nags Head , Manteo , and Southern Shores are the only jurisdictions in the Study Area that regulate the establishment of wind energy facilities ; however , this regulation does not involve notification or coordination with Seymour Johnson AFB , DCR , or any other military installation .
• The Dare County zoning ordinance allows for a maximum height of 600 feet , which may be excessive to reap the benefits of wind energy generation for this area .
• Each of the jurisdictions ’ wind energy facilities ordinances were established and adopted prior to the 2013 state law , which means these regulations are not necessarily reflective of new military compatibility guidelines .
