PITTSBORO, N.C. (July 7, 2010) – The Wildlife Commissioners of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission voted today to change the location for its District 5 public hearing on Sept. 8.

The annual public hearing will be held in the auditorium of Central Carolina Community College, 764 West Street, Pittsboro. Previously, the District 5 hearings had been held in the second floor courtroom in the Civil Courts Building, Graham.

District 5 includes Rockingham, Guilford, Randolph, Caswell, Alamance, Chatham, Lee, Person, Orange, Granville and Durham counties

A series of nine public hearings across the state solicits comments on proposed changes to hunting, fishing and trapping regulations. All hearings begin at 7 p.m. After the hearings and a review of all comments, the Wildlife Commissioners then vote whether or not to adopt the proposed rules.

This year’s hearings are also the first to be held in September since the Commission adjusted its rulemaking cycle. 

The public can also visit www.ncwildlife.org to comment online or submit comments by mail to 1701 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1701. For more information on the rulemaking process, download “From Proposal to Regulation” at www.ncwildlife.org.
