Sea Turtle Lighting Standards

Effective immediately, applications for any building permit on the barrier islands which includes Little Hickory Island, Big Hickory Island, and Black Island, which require a certificate of occupancy or certificate of compliance, as applicable under the provisions of the building code involving outdoor lighting or glass that may produce or cause to produce artificial light directly, indirectly, or cumulatively visible from any portion of the beach, must fully complete the following document. Failure to do so will delay the permit issuance process.
