Get out your surf boards?

King George County has almost six miles of beaches and three miles of sand dunes, according to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

That means anyone who wants to build in those areas needs a permit. The King George Board of Supervisors wants to make it easier for those applying for such paperwork, which costs $500.

Instead of traveling to Norfolk to apply, residents can fill out the paperwork at the King George Courthouse, if all goes as planned.

The board is asking the planning commission to hold a public hearing about the Coastal Primary Sand Dune Zoning Ordinance and report back to the board within 100 days. If the ordinance is approved, citizens would apply for permits through the King George Wetlands Board.
