The Beacon is switching gears for the week.

The Beacon will not be publishing or responding to email during most of the upcoming week. Duty calls elsewhere. We expect to resume blogging on Friday or Saturday.

Looking ahead, the Town Council will be holding a workshop session on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 9 a.m., and the Town Planning Board will be meeting on Feb. 16, at 5 p.m. Both meetings will be held in the Pitts Center, subject to COVID-19-safety protocols.

The Planning Board will be reviewing the revised Chapter 4, which is the Town Code’s definitions section, that consultant CodeWright Planners submitted as part of the final draft of its Code update and rewrite.

According to a member of the Planning Board with whom The Beacon consulted, the Board will take up at separate meetings the Town Code sections over which it has final-review authority, starting with Chapter 4.

The other chapters are Chapter 22, zoning; Chapter 26, subdivisions; and Chapter 28, flood damage prevention.

For more information about the Town Code update/rewrite, contact Town Planning Director/Deputy Managing Editor Wes Haskett at whaskett@southrnshores-nc.gov.

Planning Board meetings are not videotaped or live-streamed, but minutes are taken and are expected to be posted on the Town website.

Unfortunately, no minutes have been posted online since Feb. 18, 2020. This is an oversight that needs immediate correction.

The Town Council meeting will be live-streamed and videotaped. The meeting agenda will be posted on the Town website by this Tuesday.

Happy Super Bowl, Puppy Bowl, and Super Sunday, everyone. We are pulling for “the old guy,” of course. Any time an ageist (or sexist or racist or any other kind of) stereotype can be shattered, we are all in.

Have a great week and stay safe.

Ann G. Sjoerdsma, 2/7/21
