ZONING ORPINAI^GE The construction of homes on pilings in Pine Knoll
Shores was discussed at a public hearing on March
CHANGE DISCUSSED 31 and especially a proposal to amend the ordi
nance to require screening of the pilings.
There has been a concensus that the present ordinance needs strength—
®J^ing and clarification because the burden of judgement rests on
the building inspector* Curt Johnson, Chairman of the Planning
Board, proposed the Board’s changes which would require that build
ings located within I50 feet of the mean high water mark, or the
ocean front toe of the frontal dune, be on pilings, or stilts; if
•the house is erected on pilings protruding above the ground, such
^ flood zone area, shall be screened with no load bearing*
break-away materials. In non-flood areas the pilings shall be
covered with a material of the type and of the same construction as
the rest of the building, or material that is compatible with the
rest* of the building.
Don Brock, realtor and developer, Ken Kirkmari, attorney, and Carl
Bivens, architect, spoke in opposition to the proposed amendment.
Nelson Taylor, town attorney, presented alternative proposals
similar to those of the Planning Board.
Discussion from the floor, both pro and con, followed, and since no
decision was reached, the Board of Commissioners said they will
consider the matter further.
