Proposed zoning ordinance changes that would increase
setback requirements and limit the size and
number ot bedrooms aiiowed in new homes built on
Holden Beach met with mixed reactions from residents
I and developers at a public hearing last Tuesday night.
If approved, the changes inat are designed to cut
down on septic tank ground pollution and greater density
on the beach may become the "most stringent" standards
placed on builders along Brunswick County's
coast Holden Beach Planning Board Chairman Alan
Holden, a developer, acknowledged the requirements
would exceed the building limitations of both Long and
Ocean Isle beaches.
Following the public hearing last week, the planning
uottili uciayeu action on ihv proposed ChcUlgCU Until
its February meeting. If accepted by the planning
board, the zoning amendments would then go before the
town council for a public hearing and final approval.
Under the new amendments, the minimum side
yard setbacks for all homes would be increased from
the present five feet to seven feet. A roof overhang

According to planning board Vice-Chairman Jim
Fournier. the proposed ordinance changes "reflect as
closely as we could make it the inrait of the henio m
commissioners." The planning board has been drafting
the ordinance since April 1984.
Without a town sewer system, it is important that
the town act now to control ground pollution. Founder
said. He defended the bedroom limitations that would
produce smaller homes by adding, "You can put 25 people
in s bus, but not In a Yolkswagon."
Several developers and builders in the audience of
nhout 20 sDoke out against the bedroom limitations, but
many agreed with the seven-foot side yard setback requirement.
Developer Virgil Roberts suggested the board
recommend the seven-foot setback to the town council
and "then build all the house you want. The health
department regulates bedrooms."
