Regulators approve Carolina Beach Boardwalk extension

CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — The third time was the charm for Carolina Beach and its plan to extend the town’s boardwalk.

The Coastal Resources Commission, meeting today in Atlantic Beach, approved a variance for an 875-foot extension of the Carolina Beach Boardwalk from Harper Avenue to the Pelican Lane Public Beach Access. The town says the extension will provide several new beach accesses, improved pedestrian circulation and be fully handicapped accessible.

In October 2014 the town withdrew its variance request because it believed the CRC was about to deny it, as it had a previous request in February 2014.

Some property owners along the proposed extension have also objected to the project.
