ANNEXATION At their January meeting, the Pine Knoll Shores Commissioners took
HEARING SET first steps which could lead to the annexation of the area be-
tween the PKS western boundary and Indian Beach, It adopted a "Notice
of Intent*' to annex the area and set a public hearing on the issue
to be held at 1:30 p.m., March 8 in the Town Hall, Although the notice is the first
step and expresses an intent to annex, its adoption does not mean the area will be
annexed. However, it does mean several commissioners share the sentiments of
Commissioner Bill Dixson who proposed the annexation steps be taken at the December
meeting, Dixson suggested that the town should take in the area before **it gets all
cluttered up" developers.
At their session, the board heard Commissioner Larry Jerome report that during
1982 Certificates of Occupancy were issued to JO residential units valued at $2.5
million, 45 condominium units valued at $7 million and two commercial units valued at
$164,000, This gives an indication of how fast our town is growing.
Mayor Wayne Cleveland appointed Commissioners Aubrey Johnson and Dixson to
investigate the pros and cons of the town obtaining a computer. The mayor also named
Johnson, Bob Ames and Harry Schlimper to a committee to investigate the town's need
for a replacement ambulance and how much it would cost.
At its December meeting, the board had delayed for 30 days action on a proposed
amendment to the Sign Ordinance which would eliminate a "Grandfather Clause," The
John Yancey Motel and the Holiday Inn have requested changes in the proposed amendment.
It was suggested that Don Creech, general manager of the John Yancey, be authorized to
speak on behalf of all motels in the town. To afford Mr, Creech an opportunity to
contact all of the motel people, the board voted to delay action on the proposed amend
ment for ainother 30 days.
Commissioner Jack Thompson pointed out that 1983 automobile tags are now on
sale at the Town Hall ($1 each) and he suggested that the commissioners lead the way
in purchasing them. Judging from the crowd in the Clerk's Office following the
meeting, the commissioners were prompt in complying with the suggestion.
