Kure Beach sandbags

I've lived at Carolina Beach for the majority of 40yrs. When The Riggings were introduced as a project to the council many people and experts advised against it for this very reason but as you know the council approved and the project happened anyway. I believe the owners of The Riggings need to except the fact that they were advised against this type of development because the ocean doesn't discriminate and that's the risk you take living on the ocean front. They were offered a federal grant that includes our hard earned tax dollars to move their homes out of harms way but denied that offer. Whether they spend their own money to build a wall that will eliminate their shore or spend up to millions of their own money over the next many years on beach renourishment then this property and all ocean front properties will always face this issue. The scientific community around the world is screaming at our leaders & officials to be smarter about our decisions that concern the environment. I believe it's time to change the way we develop and prepare for 20-30yrs in the future since The Riggings did not. Wake up public officials, step out of the box and prepare for our children's & grandchildren's future.
