CAROLINA BEACH - The Carolina Beach Town Council will consider a request for a conditional use permit to build a new 53,000 square foot Harris Teeter Store and Fuel Station at 1000 North Lake Park Blvd during their upcoming August 11th, meeting.
The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously voted on July 9th, to recommend the Council approve of the permit.
In June, BBM Associates Inc of Raleigh, NC, submitted full color renderings to the Town of Carolina Beach.
The artwork shows a 53,000 square foot store and a fuel station at 1000 North Lake Park Blvd. The location was formerly Jubilee Amusement Park which was demolished years ago to make way for a mixed-use condo and retail project that never  materialized before the real estate market collapsed.
The plans - submitted by Barnes Development Co. of Charlotte, NC - show a free standing 53,288 square foot Harris Teeter Store with 5,480 square foot area for future expansion. The total area of land to be developed is 7.10 acres. There will be 269 parking spaces and a fueling station near the entrance at 1000 North Lake Park Blvd. The entrance will be located across from Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage and will include a stop-light intersection with an added turn lane on the east side of the road for vehicles turning into Harris Teeter.
The plans show four areas where the vehicle access will be connected to the older Federal Point Shopping Center that was once home to Food Lion years ago before that store moved to the Snow's Cut Crossing Shopping Center at the foot of Snow's Cut Bridge leading into Carolina Beach. The off-site improvements to Lake Park Blvd include a relocation of the existing traffic signal at the Federal Point Shopping Center entrance to a new entrance that will service both Federal Point as well as this development. Cross access easements are being finalized between Jubilee Carolina and Federal Point’s owners to allow cross easement access between the two properties for both customer and service truck access, for the benefit of both properties.  As part of the access improvements, Lake Park Blvd will be widened to accommodate a dedicated left hand turn lane into the new entrance. To accommodate the widening, Jubilee Carolina will dedicate a portion of its frontage as right of way as well as work with NCDOT to obtain a small amount of right of way from the neighboring Wings parcel. These improvements are outlined in a Traffic Impact Analysis prepared by Kimley-Horn and presented to NCDOT."
During the July 9th, meeting  Randy Simon representing neighboring Mona Black marina on Saint Joseph Street expressed concern with the potential for increased storm water runoff into a drain pipe that runs across the project's property and empties into Myrtle Grove sound via a pipe at their marina. He said there have been issues in the past and a study that showed storm water impact on water quality in the basin.
Simon was told the project is required to manage storm water on site using a retention pond. The Commission agreed the project met all conditions and regulations for a conditional use permit with the recommendation that interconnectivity or stub outs be provided to south side properties, as well as additional landscaping added around the storm water pond.
The Council will consider the request for a conditional use permit at their August 11th, meeting at 6:30PM at Town Hall following a public hearing.
