SOUTHERN SHORES - Skyline Drive Rezoning
After two votes, the Southern Shores Town Council approved the addition of a Government/Institutional zone to the Town’s zoning map. The new zone allowed for the Outer Banks Community Foundation to move forward with plans to locate an office at the end of Skyline Drive, a residential zoned area. A paper street shown on the zoning map, Michael Alan Street, became the center of controversy when residents feared that the rezoning would cause the street to be put in, thus connecting Skyline Drive to US 158. As a compromise and to calm the fears of many in attendance at the meeting, Council members approved the northern boundary of the new zone in the middle of the paper Michael Alan Street.
