Pro-Incorporation's Final Case for Sneads Ferry

By Maggie Martin

Wilmington, NC – The Sneads Ferry incorporation committee is making its final case to town residents Thursday before the May 4th vote.

The committee is holding a public meeting Thursday to address any concerns residents might have. One concern is that incorporation would take away what's left of the town's heritage.

But pro-incorporation Committee member Lynn Hinnant disagrees.

"We're kind of unique in our area that it was a small fishing village that has grown drastically in population and it's starting to lose that small heritage of the fishing village aspect and it would be an easier way to maintain that balance because you could have local control instead of county control of it," says Hinnant.

The Sneads Ferry Incorporation Committee's meeting will be held at the community building at 126 Park Lane at 7 p.m. tomorrow.

The opposition group called "No Incorporation Please" is holding its public meeting at the same community center next Tuesday at 7 p.m.
