Commission to reconsider Kure Beach sandbags

A New Hanover County judge sandbagged the state's Coastal Resources Commission Tuesday. In January 2008 the commission recommended that the Riggings Condominiums in Kure Beach be denied a permit extension on the condo's sandbags. Tuesday, New Hanover County judge, Jay Hockenbury, reversed the commission's decision and sent it back to the commission to reconsider. The sandbags, which protect the building from beach erosion, have been a point of environmental contention since 2005.

Kure Beach sand bags

Why don't these property owners quit wasting tax payer dollars, demolish & move on. They were advised in the beginning when they wanted to construct there that it was a hazard. But when you have enough money this world has learned that you can probably build anywhere you want. These folks wanted that ocean front view, paid for it & were going to get it no matter what the costs. If you want to ruin the beach front completely build a sea wall to protect your precious building. Just because it's there doesn't mean you should build on it. It's time for folks with too much money to waste to get smart & rethink their investments that are more environmentally sound.
