Committee's Mission Will Be To
Study Environment, Development
BY ERIC CARLSON
A pair of environmental activists,
two real estate brokers, a farm sup
ply dealer and a retired industry su
pervisor were selected by the Bruns
wick County Commissioners on
Monday to study ways of balancing
the need tor development with the
protection of natural resources.
Once fully staffed at seven mem
bers, the new Zoning Overlay Com
mittee will identify areas of Bruns
wick County that need special envi
ronmental protection and will devel
op special "overlay zones" to ad
dress those needs.
"Our overall mission statement
would be to balance the protection
of our county's unique environment
and natural resources with the
growth of the economic develop
ment of the county," Planning
Director Wade Home said in his
July 20 report recommending the
The overlay committee concept
evolved from a serious of often
stormy planning board meetings at
which residents in and around a
large heavy manufacturing zone
near Southport confronted members
over what was felt to be an inappro
priate use for the area
Attention was focused on the
heavy manufacturing zone during
last year's fight to prevent Marlin
Marietta Aggregates Inc. from
building a large gravel mine there.
The leader of the mining foes and
another active opponent of the quar
ry were among those appointed to
the overlay committee.
The study group is to include one
member from each voting district
and two at-large members. All but
one of those seats was filled

committee will be three-fold ? first,
it will "identify specific resources
not otherwise protected where pro

lic interest in the particular area of
concern along the Cape Fear River."
The committee also will identify
interests related to land-use policy
and collect comments and evidence
regarding the impact of county poli

concerns, including the creation of
The zoning overlay committee
will report its recommendations to
the planning board, which oversees
implementation of the county zon

committee's first meeting.
In other business, the board was
presented with an award from the
National Association of Counties in
recognition of the Brunswick
County Turtle Watch Program.

attended the organization's national
conference, where Brunswick

Men In Trucks
A Brunswick County Sheriff's
detective on Monday urged local
residents ? especially the elderly ?
to be on the lookout for a group of
men who may try to steal property
from homes while representing
themselves as carpet salesmen
Detective John Ingram said the
men successfully removed a quanti
ty of cash from the purse of an Ash
widow recently while distracting her
with a sales pitch for a piece of car
pet. The men drove off toward
Columbus County in a pickup truck.
The same men arc believed to
have tried to sell a roll of carpet off
their truck four days later to another
widow who lives in the Ash area
about two miles from the first vic
A neighbor who was aware of the
earlier theft saw the men talking to
the woman while driving down the
lo Watch For
road. Ingram said. When the neigh
bor turned around and drove back to
alert the woman, the men in the
pickup truck left the area.
"They seem to be targeting elder
ly women and they may be operat
ing out of Columbus County."
He asked residents to keep an eye
out for any suspicious- looking men
selling rolls of carpet from the back
of a pickup truck or who uses a sim
ilar sales pitch in an attempt to get
inside a home
Anyone who sees such activity or
remembers seeing a similar vehicle
recently should call Dctectivc
Ingram at (910) 253-4321 or (800)
"It would help tremendously if
they could get a good description of
the men and the vehicle and. if pos
siblc, a license tag number." Ingram
