V. Construction Activities
A. Access Pathways
- The construction of a pathway across the Yadkin-Managed Buffer to the reservoir shoreline is allowed by permit only and must not commence until a written permit is granted. Pathways should be constructed to minimize the number of trees and the amount of vegetation to be removed. Pathways constructed on the Yadkin-Managed Buffer and/or within the 100-foot forested setback must meet the following specifications:
- Pathways must be no wider than 6 feet.
- Pathways must be constructed of pressure-treated wood, gravel, or uncemented brick, rock, stone, or paving blocks.
- Those applying for a permit to construct a pathway must provide Yadkin with the following information:
- A map or sketch of the adjoining property showing the location of the proposed pathway, including the Yadkin-Managed Buffer, if present.
- The location of trees and vegetation to be removed.
- Materials to be used in construction.
C. Roads / Boat Launch Ramps
- 1. Construction of private piers and multi-use facilities may be permitted as outlined in the Specifications for Private Recreation Facilities or Multi-use Procedures, respectively. Construction of any other structures in the reservoirs, along the reservoir shoreline below the normal full-pool elevation of the reservoir, or on the Yadkin-Managed Buffer is prohibited.
- New houses and other buildings on a permanent foundation located in a subdivision platted and recorded on or after July 1, 1999 must comply with the 100-foot forested setback requirement set forth in Section III.A.5, above.
- Construction of roads of any sort along the reservoir shoreline or on the Yadkin-Managed Buffer is prohibited without Yadkin’s written permission.
- Construction of private boat launching facilities is prohibited, except as may be permitted under the Multi-use Procedures.
