New Grocery Store Proposed for Emerald Isle


Plans for a proposed new grocery store will be considered by the Planning Board and the Board of Commissioners at multiple meetings in August and September.  The new 31,000+ sq. ft. store is proposed for vacant parcels (6+ acres) located along NC 58 and Crew Drive between Emerald Landing Drive and the Emerald Plantation Shopping Center.  

The proposed project includes a change in the legal status of Crew Drive, but maintains public use of the Crew Drive roadway in perpetuity in the same location.  The applicants have proposed construction of a new, wider public roadway with curb and gutter, and also new sidewalks along Crew Drive and Emerald Landing Drive.  The proposed project also includes either the installation of a new traffic signal or roundabout at the NC 58 / Emerald Landing Drive intersection to address projected traffic impacts.
