To the editor:
Sunset Beach Mayor Ron Watts has his facts wrong on swimming pools in Palm Cove. No zoning applied to Palm Cove ever permitted swimming pools.
In 1992 the owner of Bird Island proposed to develop the island. The Sunset Beach Planning Board created a special zoning district, CR-1, to accommodate the owner’s wishes. This zoning allowed clubhouses, parking lots, swimming pools, private beach accesses, etc.
