Two vacant oceanfront lots at
Holden Beach will remain residential
rather than commercial, if town
commissioners follow the advice of
tl Tt.lj r> *- tm "
uie nuiuen rseacn Planning ana zoning
Planning board members voted
unanimously Monday night to recommend
that the town not rezone the
two lots just west of Rothschild Street
where the town hall is located. To
change the lots from residential to
commercial would create "spotzoning"
along the beach strand.
Town Administator Bob Buck said,
since the lots are not already contiguous
to a commercial zone.
The rezoning request was made at
litot TuCsciuV'c meeting of ths plsnning
board in the form of a letter from
Hazel L. and Jimmie T. Monroe. The
two lots lie in the R.H. Holden Subdivision
near 137 Ocean Blvd. West.
"I have been contacted by
numerous people on the beach," said
board member Harry Yoder. "Even
though the lots are very ciose to a
commercial area, it might as well be
four miles down the beach as far as
what we would open up."
What the board would "open up"
by approving the rezoning request
was a "Pandora's box," Yoder said,
inviting others along the beach
strand to ask for "spot-zoning."
Town commissioners will have the
final vote on the request since the
planning and zoning board only votes
on recommendations to ttie town
"What bothers me is I am so close
to where traffic will be coming off of

Registration books for the election

Ms. Britt said there had been no
noticeable increase in registrations
and no related activity that could be
attributed to interest in the forthcoming
referendum. A final review of
registrations will be made during the
week before the election.
In the election called by the town
board of aldermen Shallotte voters
will decide whether to allow diners to
have a glass of wine or beer with
Specifically, they will determine
Whether to allow the sale of beer
or other malt beverages for consumption
on the premises of Class A
restaurants, hotels and motels;
Whether to allow the sale of unfortified
wines for on-premises consumption
in eating places; and
Whether to allow the sale of unfortified
wines by licensed retail stores
for off-premises consumption.
Unfortified wines had been sold at
the Shallotte ABC Store, a practice
that ended last year by state order.
Fortified wines and wines produced

ABC votes has been much lower than
for muncipal elections.
In the town's last alcoholic
beverage control election, on Jan. 6,
1976, 68 of the town's 300-plus voters
cast ballots, defeating beer and wine
issues 2 to 1. Twenty-nine voted for
the on-premises and off-premises
sale of wine, while 46 voted against.
Twenty-one voted for on-premises
and off-premises sale of beer and 47
against. However, off-premises sales
of beer and malt beverages continued
because they had been approved
in an earlier election.
In contrast to the ABC referendum
turnout, 243 Shallotte voters cast
ballots in the 1983 municipal election
