Porter's Neck to get new Lowe's Home Improvement

PORTER'S NECK -- A new Lowe's Home Improvement store will be built in the Porter's Neck area. New Hanover County commissioners approved a rezoning request on Tuesday to green-light the project. Residents in the area originally opposed it, claiming it would bring an unsafe increase in traffic. The developer of the project has been meeting with these folks over the past few weeks to address these concerns. When the request was brought to a vote on Tuesday it passed uncontested.
