Just the thought of high rises on Oak Island makes me sick to my stomach. We've been to beaches in California, Oregon, Hawaii, Florida, the Carribean and Texas. To us, nothing compares to standing on the boardwalk of a beach house on Oak Island, looking down the beach and seeing boardwalk after boardwalk. When I descripe Oak Island to my friends, I tell them that in 11 miles of beach there are only a handfull of businesses. They agree that it sounds perfect. I pray that high rises will never be on Oak Island.

My wife and I retired here because it is more like a small town. We don't want another Myrtle Beach or even a St. Jimmy. Don't let greedy politicians sell us out!

I agree. Oak Island is one of only a few places that don't look like a "beach community"...

Say no to high rises We need more roads and parking.There are plenty of places like that now. In fact you can buy them dirt cheap in Fla. because they are empty.
