Carolina Beach request denied to extend boardwalk


By Kate Elizabeth Queram

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.

boardwalk grant

So my question is..Where is the grant money that the city of CB said they received? and why so many lies and delays on the cities part? one day it's all a go and the next it's not..WHAT IS THE TRUTH HERE?

Try going to a town council meeting...

...and listening. Here it is in a nutshell: The boardwalk will still be redesigned and renovated as planned. The northern extension was only a portion of the overall plan to increase the length of the boardwalk. However, due to a bunch of lip-flappin' from one, single transplanted, tree-huggin' resident, the extension was denied by the CRC. There aren't any lies or delays, there are procedures that have to be followed and the CRC review is one of them.

If you are a resident of CB, make an effort to remain engaged and informed. That way, your conspiracy theories will simply melt away and not provide you with ammunition with which to make erroneous judgement and mephitic accusations.
