This latest case of “pier pressure” shows just how far our elected officials will go with little to no further planning.
While there is currently no plan for design or construction (much less funding plans), Town officials in Carolina Beach have proposed a property tax increase of 1.5 cents per $100 in value to pay for two acres of beach front property valued at $4 million.
At a public meeting held Tuesday, Town officials in Carolina Beach discussed the land to be used for a fishing pier, parking lot and other amenities, receiving mixed reactions.
Like the two other state-owned fishing piers (Jennette’s and Emerald Isle), the pier in Carolina Beach would be partnered with the Aquarium at Fort Fisher.

Don’t forget, the town of Oak Island also purchased a pier and is starting to have similar issues.
