Citing concerns from a single property owner, the Coastal Resources Commission at its meeting Wednesday denied a request from Carolina Beach to extend the boardwalk as part of a larger revitalization project.
"Overall, I think it's a great project, but my biggest concern is with the northern extension," said Commissioner Larry Baldwin, a Carteret County resident who fills the commission’s seat designated for someone with coastal development expertise. "I've got serious concerns with that."
The CRC, which oversees development in the state's 20 coastal counties, is meeting this week in Nags Head.
