Just about every time the Holden

holds a meeting, die folks who ar

That wasn't the case Saturday,
when only IS members showed up
at town hall for the Memorial Day

"I'm disappointed. Where is
everybody?" asked former president
Bob Lineberger. "Maybe if we stir
up enough controversy everybody
will come to the meetings."
Lineberger, chairman of the
Holden Beach POA's growth com
mittee, may stir up some interest if
the oommittw. winds up recom
mending measures to limit growth
snd dgysiopssgst on the island.
Lineberger said there are two ma
jor groups at Holden Beach. One
wants to slow down development or
stop it completely and the other is in
favor of a central sewer system and
"Hopefully there's a friendly
meeting ground between the two,"
Lineberger said during his report to
HBPOA director Andy Watson
*aid the public needs to continuous
ly discuss a sewer system to keep
ths idea alive. He said most town
commissioners are not in favor of a
occu scwcis di 8MUB puia> iac
time. If we doc't discuss thess it's
going to cost us several million dol
lars moie," Watson said.
Lineberger pointed out that only
about half of the lots on Holden
Beach have been developed. A sew
er system would likely open more
land up for development.
"I think our main concern was
can you picture this beach with dou
ble the houses and population it has
now?" Lineberger said.
In other business Saturday, Town
Manager Gus Ulrich reported to
members on the underground wiring
project, sidewalk construction and
the 1994-95 budget
Ulrich also announced that the
town plans to build a beach access
ramp for handicapped people at
Jordan Boulevard. The South
Brunswick Islands Pilot Club recent
ly donated a special wheel chair that
can be used on the beach.
During the board of directors'
meeting Saturday, HBPOA Pres
ident Crawford Halt said director;
discussed a possible amendment to
the bylaws that would allow the as
