Sounds like they got it right. At least IMO. No need to rush into it.

The issues are noise and money. Money won.

The perceived public safety issue just muddies up the arguments. What might or might not happen is not happening. If it were then pictures of dead and injured people would be in clear view. The fire chief and police chief would be clamoring for action. Give money a muddied up argument and you’ll end up on a task force where the real issues go to die.

The issues are noise and money. Money won and always will with a muddied up argument.

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.

A letter that the town supposedly sent NC Building Code Council two years ago (2017) was not sent. I inquired to get a copy and the town clerk, Mary Quidley, said they were sorry, but the draft of the letter was never sent.

Now we are trying to raise money though a Go Fund Me to hire an attorney. Looks like they are willing to take a chance that a tragedy will happen but we sure are not!!!

What tragedy? That's a cop out! You have no legitimate argument as to why not let progress proceed so you conjure up a list of what ifs. It's all about money, sure, but that's the driving factor behind the chamber, and your elected. Build it, attract, fill it and the bank account.

There seems to be this new trend sweeping the country from NYC to KDH, and it goes like this:

I'M OUTRAGED AND WE BETTER PASS A NEW LAW QUICKLY.

Revising the local zoning is the correct way to handle these issues, but if it's going to be done it should be thoughtfully and throughly crafted to be able to withstand challenges. Just look at the completely embarrassing antics of Southern Shores and Duck.

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?
