Protect Porter's Neck
A large developer is proposing a large development in Porters Neck, NC on a 51 acre parcel. It will require a rezoning hearing to change from the existing R15/R20 (which has been a large family owned farm since 1904) to mixed/multi use.
The developer's proposal on this small parcel includes 300+ apartments in several three story buildings, 125+ duplexes and 50+ single family homes. Their proposed lots would be small, even by Wilmington standards.
The neighbors of Porters Neck, and New Hanover/Pender counties vehemently object to this proposal based on the environmental and traffic impacts. Additionally, the newest local elementary school is currently over 100% capacity in its second year.
The developer held a community informational meeting on Oct. 1, 2019, as is required prior to application for rezoning with the planning board and County Commissioners. This meeting was attended by over 550 people in red shirts voicing their objections. The developer was not prepared for the crowd, and provided poor answers to the community's concerns. Despite this large turnout, and objection, the developer is still applying for the proposal without significant changes to their plan.
Let your county planning board, and elected officials with the County Commissioners, know we do not want, and our area cannot survive this high density development!
