Ike McRee, County Attorney, provided an overview of the road closure request made by Currituck Waterfront Business Park, LLC. He reviewed requirements previously fulfilled by the county to move forward with the public hearing, which included the adoption of a Resolution of Intent to Close at the March 20, 2017, Board of Commissioners meeting.

Chairman Hanig opened the Public Hearing.

Lisa Ray, of Ray Commercial, Powells Point, represents the Stonecypher Estate and requested a sixty day postponement to allow more time to resolve ownership of the road. She said Stonecypher is the road owner but the road would be split if the abandonment was adopted now. Ms. Ray said Quible Engineering is working on the project and everything should be completed by June 15th.

Pete Thompson, representing Currituck Waterfront Park, said they have been working on the land and simply want to find out where the boundaries are. Mr. Thompson stressed the importance of the boundaries, as the area includes highlands and wetlands, and said he is not opposed to delaying the abandonment until June 15th.

With no others wishing to speak Chairman Hanig closed the public hearing.

Commissioner Payment moved to postpone any action and bring the item back before the Board at the June 19, 2017, Commissioners meeting. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Hall and carried unanimously.
