Newsroom Podcast June 10 – Military Cutoff development, Carolina Beach, reader questions and more

We tackle a wild week: The Avenue, CenterPoint, Carolina Beach parking, Harris Teeter vs. Publix, MOTSU, and more. Plus, we answer the reader question, "Why are there no sidewalks?"

This week we recap what happened with The Avenue and CenterPoint developments–and what went down behind the scenes as we reported on it.

Questions remain about how members of the Planning Commission and City Council handle conflicts of interest, including why the real estate firm for which one city councilman does work was listed on the website of The Avenue development he voted to approve this week.

We also take a look at a number of stories coming out of Carolina Beach, including a hike in parking rates and the battle between Harris Teeter and Publix developers.

In this week’s reader question section, we take a look at why some neighborhoods have sidewalks while others don’t–and how the city is working to fill in the gaps. Lastly, we take a look at why stroke victims in Wilmington have much better odds of surviving.
