Ocracoke Village is 963 acres, with only 569 acres suitable for development due to marshlands. Of that, 450 acres are already developed.
In the remaining undeveloped 119 acres, the only property large enough to support a ball eld is the ve acre Burrus tract. is property is subdivided with six septic permits secured for six large homes and contains two acres of unbuildable marshland.
As the economy improves and the potential to lose this last large green space increases, the Ocracoke Community Park commiee purchased the Burrus property. With 100% owner nancing in place at 3% interest and payments scheduled over ten years, the Ocracoke community children are ready for the sound of “let’s play ball!” in their “Field of Dreams”.
Share the dream with them and please donate to Ocracoke Community Park.
Ocracoke Community Park commiee wishes to thank the Ocracoke Occupancy Tax Board and the many volunteers for all their support on th is project.
