missioners allocated $25,000 to move and relocate the building, in
which the Brunswick County Airport Commission will rent office
space. The airport is near the north end of the Oak Island bridge.

Holden Board Ignores Attorney;
Grants Variance For Homeowner
BY DOUG RUTTER
The Holden Beach Board of
Adjustment, contrary to the town at
torney's advice, granted a variance
Monday that will allow an ocean
front property owner to use part of
the front-yard setback area.
The variance will allow the own
er, Linda Silber of Raleigh, to en
croach 12 feet into the 25-foot set
back and ultimately allow her to sell
the property at 150 Ocean
Silber told the board Monday
night that she planned to sell the lot
and house, but couldn't do it without
the variance. She said the lender
wanted an assurance that the home
could be reconstructed if it was de
stroyed by fire.
Because of erosion at the proper
ty, Silber said the prospective new
owners would not be able to rebuild
without moving the home away
from the ocean and into the setback
"If I can't sell my property it's
worthless, and that is a hardship,"
Town Attorney Ken Campbell ad
vised board members against granti
ng the variance. He said the law
does not allow variances unless ex
isting conditions prevent an owner
from using the land.
Campbell also said the property
owner had no grounds for requesting
a variance in this case, because she
had not been turned down for a
"It's really a Catch-22 that the ac
cident would have to occur first in
order for you to have grounds to ask
for a variance," said board chairman
However, most board members
rejected Campbell's interpretation.

They said variances may be granted
if conditions prevent someone from
getting a return on their property.
"I interpret the rules differently,"
said Allan Dameron, whose motion
to grant the variance passed on a 4- 1
Larry Boyte, Crawford Hart and
Marlene Thomas voted in favor of
Dameron 's motion, and Williamson
voted against it.
Tom Morgan, speaking on behalf
of the owner, said granting the vari
ance would benefit the public be
cause the town would lose tax base
if the house burned down and could
not be rebuilt.
"This would allow us to rebuild
on this site if this house were de
stroyed," Morgan said. "I see no
way this will really harm the public.
We're not encroaching into areas
that are needed for public utilities."
In a similar case Monday, the
board granted a variance to
Nanabeth Rankin of High Point that
will allow her to encroach 10 feet
into the front setback at 114 Ocean
Morgan said the owner plans to
move the house away from the
ocean under the federal Upton-Jones
program, which pays for relocation
of structures threatened by erosion.
