At this time we are not anticipating that there will be a federal declaration that will provide for disposal of debris and household goods damaged by Hurricane Ian. Residents and property owners should plan and act accordingly to make private arrangements to dispose of refuse. Prior to the rehab and repair of any structures flooded by Ian you must obtain a permit. This includes houses, walkways, piers and docks. If you have a home damaged by flooding please contact the Holden Beach Building Inspections Department for guidance on repair before moving forward. Town ordinances require use of a construction dumpster for construction debris. The removal of these materials is to be arranged by the contractor or homeowner.
Files coming soon.

As mayor/emergency management director, I encourage all citizens to develop their emergency plan, build an emergency kit and communicate your plan to your household. Click here for some helpful information you can use while developing your plan. Also, make sure you have your vehicle decals in place.

The Town of Holden Beach is located midway between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC - about 40 minutes from each. The Town is situated on an Atlantic coastal barrier island, facing south onto the Long Bay region of Brunswick County.
With over eight miles of clean, sandy beaches and a year round moderate temperature, the island attracts many visitors who want to experience a unique, quiet, family oriented atmosphere. Holden Beach has a very small commercial area on the island. That point is considered by many as the key reason they keep coming back year after year. While there are limited commercial establishments on the island, everything one could desire is located within a short driving distance.
Boating, fishing and hiking the island are very popular activities. There are plenty of shells for those interested in shell hunting. There are over 125 superb golf courses located within an hour drive of the island. The island is a sea turtle habitat and during the hatching season (May - October) those who don't mind staying up late can witness one of nature's most interesting pleasures - watching hundreds of small sea turtles "boil" out of the sand and marching to the ocean.
There is no other North Carolina barrier island like Holden Beach, low commercial impact, hundreds of beautiful rental homes and a wholesome family oriented atmosphere.
