WILMINGTON, N.C. (August 28, 2015) - Through the Strong Neighbor Action Program (SNAP©), the Association is entering the final stretch prior to event day on Saturday, September 12th. On the 12th, dozens of homeowners, led by REALTORS®, will install community projects in three neighborhoods. “Earlier this year, the Association was awarded grants for Bayshore, Chestnut Heights, and Snow’s Cut neighborhoods,” said Bobby Jean Harvey, Community Affairs Committee Chair. “We surveyed neighbors and identified a short list of options for projects, and then met at a neighborhood meeting to make a decision.”
KURE BEACH, N.C. (July 15, 2015) – On April 1, 2015, the Kure Beach Planning & Zoning Commission attempted to pass a vacation rental ordinance (VRO), which would have created a separate registration and punitive program in place specifically for area rental units.
In concert with a host of REALTORS®, property managers, and citizens from our area, the Association successfully defeated the proposed VOR. The issue has not gone away, and legitimately there are issues of concern. Thus, the Association, working with locals, sent this letter to coastal property managers thereby addressing some the raised concerns, while allowing action to be voluntary.
WILMINGTON, N.C. (July 15, 2015) – Earlier this year, the New Hanover County Planning Board faced stern pressure from Oxford House, Inc., which operates a group home in the county, to adopt a proposed text amendment that would effectively legalized its specialized form of group homes.
While Oxford House, Inc. felt exceedingly confident in the merits of its proposition due to victories in the U.S. Supreme Court, county officials sought after the expertise of leaders and staff with the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors® (WRAR).
