I’m Beth O’Leary who spoke at the meeting. Skip Jones was condescending, Terry Gray and John Windley wimped out. Mike Hogan was the hero of the day, so sad he is leaving. Town attorney told me that Nags Head was working to remove their new amendment to limit single family to 5000 square feet. They are not. There is an amendment to eliminate lot size requirements and that’s not likely to pass.
Beth, thank you so much for speaking up. I get it....big corporations and elected officials and cash and all that stuff....blah blah blah. No one will be happy until every square foot of available real estate on the northern beaches is filled in with bedrooms. There are people here who are simple homeowners....not part of some corporate real estate investment firm some place else....and have been for many years. We own a home on a block where there are old, family homes on the beach front....what a pleasure, and for how long?
And as far as being careful and making wise decisions....what's the alternative? 27 bedroom event "homes"? Where was the careful decision making there?
