Kure Beach Leaders Want Cap on Building Heights

JUNE 15, 2006 -- Town leaders in Kure Beach are hoping to put a cap on the controversy over building heights.

Town officials along with the help of state lawmakers want the legislature to adopt a 35-foot height limit for any building.

Supporters of the height limit believe it will help keep the small town look and feel of Kure Beach.

Town leaders previously proposed a change to the town charter that would allow voters to determine how high a structure could be built on a case-by-case basis. The new proposed bill would not allow any flexibility.

The proposed bill hasn't come up for a vote yet in the House or Senate.
