Holden Beach POA
BY DOUG RUTTER
If some Holden Beach homeowners had their way, a
barrier would be built at the top of the high-rise bridge
to prevent anyone else from building on their beautiful
They realize that's not going to happen, but they still
would like to see future growth of the town limited so
Holden Beach doesn't join the long list of overdevel
oped beach resorts.
With that in mind, the Holden Beach Property
Owners Association (HBPOA) has formed a committee
charged with studying orderly growth of the community.
Bob Lineberger, Carl Pritchard, Dwight Carroll,
Melba Von Sprecken, Marietta Wright, Charles Hauser
and Harley Young will serve on the committee created
Saturday morning at the group's Thanksgiving weekend
Lineberger, a property owner at Holden Beach since
the 1940s and a former president of the HBPOA, said
the town needs to control future growth and limit the
number of people who come on the island.
HBPOA President Crawford Hart suggested land
owners attend town meetings when the land use plan is
discussed. The plan, which is updated every five years,
is used as a guide for future development.
Dune renourishment work could begin in January at
Holden Beach, pending issuance of a state permit and
approval of the town's plan to spend more than $50,000
in federal money.
Town Manager Gus Ulrich, who also serves as exec
utive secretary of the HBPOA, reported on the dune re
building project Saturday morning.
He said the town is still waiting for the Federal
Emergency Management Agency to approve the town's
proposal for spending the federal money Holden Beach
received following the March 13 storm.
Town officials also plan to spend up to $44,000 of
town funds to repair some of the damaged dunes.
Holden Beach has applied for a sedimentation and
erosion control permit it will need to remove approxi
mately 12,000 cubic yards of sand from a spoil area be
tween Brunswick Avenue and the Atlantic Intracoastal
"It will probably be early January before we have
everything lined up to work," Ulrich said.
He said it's unlikely the town will be able to carry
out a plan to establish a fixed rate for oceanfront home
owners interested in paying for dune repairs on their
He said contractors have told him they can't provide
across-the-board estimates because each lot is different.
"A contractor's going to have to look at each place on its
own in order to give a reliable figure," he said.
Ulrich also reported Saturday that underground utili
ties work in the Holden Beach Harbor area should be
finished by the end of the year.
The sidewalk along Ocean Boulevard will be ex
tended east of the bridge next spring, when work near
the west end of the island also is planned.
Island resident Larry Vogt will soon replace Ulrich
as HBPOA executive secretary. Since taking over the
position earlier this year, Ulrich has been hired as town
HBPOA directors discussed but took no action
Saturday regarding the lack of piblic beach accessways
in the Harbor Acres subdivision, which is served by one
Director Bob Buck said the town lost several access
ways in that area years ago when it failed to formally ac
cept and open accessways that were dedicated by devel
"There's no place up there for an access unless they
condemn some land," President Hart said.
"I can empathize with them but I don't think there's
anything we can do for them," he added. "The town has
done everything it can do short of taking legal action."
Town officials recently sent letters to oceanfront
property owners asking them to provide land for beach
accessways, but there were no responses.
