Sugar Loaf Line of Defense Update

At Tuesday night’s, October 8, 2013, Carolina Beach Town Council meeting, Council voted to rescind the Conditional Use Permit to put their waste transfer station on land off Lake Park Blvd., which has a portion of the Civil War Sugar Loaf line of Trenches.

Councilwoman, Jody Smith, amended the motion to include that Town staff work with the Society and others to use the property as Ryder Lewis wished when he donated the property to the Town.

In conversation with Jerry Haire, Project Manager for the Town, he suggested that our group and other interested parties come up with a plan to perserve this portion of the historical site.
