WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) – Aldermen in Wrightsville Beach approved changing a zoning ordinance which will give the local elementary school a little more room.

The ordinance change will allow students to attend class at a church, to help ease the overcrowded conditions at Wrightsville Beach Elementary School. School officials came to an agreement to lease two classrooms at the Wrightsville Beach Baptist Church, but needed the zoning ordinance change to make it happen.

Aldermen only approved the change for one year, not the requested two years. Mayor David Cignotti says if the school system wants to lease the church space for a second school year, officials will have to make another request.
