Rejected Developer Keeps Fighting County to Build
The Planning Department, the Coastal Barrier Resources Act, the county's land-use plan and even the Army Core of Engineers are against Friedman's proposed hotel in an undeveloped section of Swan Beach.
"Over the years, Friedman has contended the northern Outer Banks communities, first platted more than 40 years ago, included sections for business," writes Jeff Hampton of The Virginian-Pilot.
Since then, a host of land use controls have come into effect in the area. Friedman's rezoning request goes before the county next month.
