Carolina Beach Boardwalk extension denied
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Carolina Beach Boardwalk extension project is at a halt — again.
At the Coastal Resources Commission meeting Wednesday, officials denied the town’s request for permission to work on the project. The project would extend the boardwalk north, from Harper Avenue to Pelican Lane. The distance is about 875 feet.
This is not the first time the town has requested a variance to extend the boardwalk. They made their first request back in February. That request was also denied. Town officials said, however, it’s not over yet.
“We’re disappointed. We’ve worked hard on it. We’ve worked in good faith with the property owners to try and bring a betterment to the town and our visitors. We would have liked to see it approved, but the message I think we’re hearing is take it back and make some revisions, so at least there is some life left in it,” Mayor Dan Wilcox said.
