CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Plans for a proposed pier that Carolina Beach Town Council members were hoping to build near Carolina Beach Avenue have been axed.
Last week, Town Council member Steve Shuttleworth and other officials met with Governor Beverly Perdue and her staff. Perdue told them that the education fishing pier they were hoping to get will not likely be coming, according to Shuttleworth.
Council members are still looking to turn the area into something people will enjoy.
“Whether it’s a splash pad, or a gazebo, or some additional parking, an open space, but it would be public space,” Shuttleworth said.
This summer Council members plan to have more discussions on what to do with the property.
