Zoning Run Amok

Ug.  This is truly disappointing to me.  I was at this location in Southport last week.  There were kids lined up waiting while two clowns made balloon animals and painted faces.  It was a genuine community experience, and I thought, "Why can't we have more stuff like this in Wilmington?"  And now look at what they're trying to do.  I can tell you those benches, just two I think, were essential for parents to take a rest while their kids waited in line.

In other business Thursday, the board heard complaints from the owners of Bullfrog Corner gift shop and their supporters about a recent citation they received for having benches on the sidewalk in front of their store, in violation of town codes.
