NC ports asked to give land for park

Thursday, July 25th, 2013


Associated Press

WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — The board of directors of the North Carolina State Ports Authority will review a proposal to turn over land to the state that was originally slated for a new container port near Southport.

The board met in Wilmington on Thursday and heard from representatives of Save the Cape. The environmental group is suggesting the 600-acre tract be turned over for a state park and in return state lawmakers may be willing to give an appropriation to the ports to retire some of its debt.

Public opposition a number of years ago scuttled plans to develop the terminal.

Board Chairman Danny McComas says he thinks board members will go for the proposal in concept. A resolution supporting the idea was referred to a board committee.
