Galleria shopping center in lawmakers' hands
 

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The future of the old Galleria shopping center is now up to the General Assembly. Both the Wilmington City Council and Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen approved an inter-local agreement to annex the property Tuesday night.

It stipulates that Wilmington pay $7,200 a year in property taxes for four years and then $30,000 a year to Wrightsville Beach for 25 years.

A new developer to trying to fill the property with stores and apartments. Now, a lawmaker must submit a bill in the General Assembly to make it a done deal.

It would be a great location for a massive indoor Topless Ice Skating Rink.

I think they need to bulldoze it down and build Creekwood II.

Sounds like one hell of a deal for Wrightsville Beach, and a screw job for Wilmington any way you slice it. I'm glad the two towns are playing nice, but not so the city can sacrifice cash and resources for what may never materialize.
