CAROLINA BEACH — Nearly all of the property along the north end of Freeman Park is owned by limited liability corporations, but there are still two pieces of land not owned by corporations. Now the Town of Carolina Beach wants a piece of the action.

Carolina Beach could become the newest owner of Freeman Park Lot 6B if Town Council approves a $500,000 contract to buy the land in the name of greenspace preservation.

Town Manager Michael Cramer has submitted a contract for Town Council to approve the purchase of the land during its March 13 meeting. Cramer said the town has not yet decided what it would do with the property if the purchase were approved.

“There is no particular plan other than the preservation of greenspace, or sand-space in this situation,” Cramer said.

Currently there is no direct access to the land, the only option to reach the property would be to access it by the dry-sand beach, he said.
