CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Carolina Beach Town Council also held a public hearing to consider closing a portion of a road in order to move forward in building a hotel on the north end of the boardwalk.

Last month, council approved a “resolution of intent” to close 170’ of Carolina Beach Avenue North, where a Hampton Inn & Suites is in talks of being built. Town Manager Tim Owens says the road closure is necessary in order for the hotel to fit on the property.

Some who live on Pleasure Island say they are worried that traffic would become an issue with the road closure.

    Why complain? You should be happy a new hotel is going up. Increased tax revenue from the hotel will ease the future tax burden on residents. If the final plan is acceptable, getting there is worth the inconvience.

    I used to live by the north end and was shocked to hear they are planning on closing this portion of CBA North. I no longer have a dog in the fight though, so have at it.

    Why does all the new construction going on around Wilmington and the beaches look the same??
