WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - Residents are fighting a proposal for a kayak launch in Wrightsville Beach.

Town leaders are proposing to build it on Pelican Dr. near Channel Walk Condos.

Those who live in the nearby neighborhood are circulating a petition to try to block the plan. They say kayakers would increase current problems in the community in regards to parking and trespassing, but kayakers say it would make the sport safer.

Wrightsville Beach alderman would have to approve the plan.
