The properties between Hollowell Street and the 7-Eleven at Conch Street have been recommended to be rezoned from C-2 to R-3. Most of this area has been developed residentially to the R-3 standard. Therefore, the most compatible classification with this area is R-3. Additionally, extension of the R-3 district would require an undisturbed vegetative buffer along US 158, which was a requisite when Old Nags Head Place was developed. This buffer maintains an attractive and functional (stormwater absorption), vegetated corridor across from Jockey’s Ridge State Park.
The properties from the 7-Eleven south to Mulligan’s Grille are currently developed as commercial uses; therefore, the C-5 designation was selected for them.
Areas where there are clusters of residentially developed and vacant properties south of Mulligan’s have been designated as R-3. Areas with commercial development or a mixture of commercial and residential development have been designated as C-5.
