Public Meeting to discuss building height limit

The town of Kure Beach will hold a public meeting tonight to talk about the town's building height limit. At issue are the exceptions that should be allowed beyond the current limit of 35 feet. Air conditioning units, antennas and satellite dishes are some items on the list. Currently the town does not allow those items to be built above the 35-foot height limit, but it's not clearly stated in the town's ordinance. Kure Beach Mayor Mac Montgomery says clarifying the ordinance will help builders and future residents maintain the town's neighborhood atmosphere. The meeting is scheduled for 6:00 tonight at Kure Beach Town Hall.

Kure Beach height limit

Residents stand strong to keep Kure Beach a charming, quaint, southern beach town. You can have a thriving & growing community where people can live, work & play. It can be done at 35ft. Don't be another Carolina Beach that falls prey to developers to build what they want to & how high they want to. Even the Hilton is wanting to go above the height limit because it's not enough. I would tell them if you're unable to follow the guidelines then build somewhere else. I believe you might do well to investigate the development plan of Sanibel & Captiva Island, FL. They have strict plans & 70% of the island is a nature conservancy because they truly believe that what they have is a "gold mine". I've vacation there a few times & going there again this summer-it is truly a wonder & a gold mine to where the Fortune 500 have their other homes to get away from it all-there's not even a McDonald's (they tried).
