Q. Why is there no stop sign on Ocean Gate? Very near the new Westgate Nature Park in Leland, there is a road that runs just east of the Walmart that intersects West Gate Drive. Although not named on most online maps, this road is identified as Ocean Gate on the park plan online and on site. There is no stop sign at any point at that intersection. As a first-time visitor to the park, I had a near collision this past weekend. (911 Dispatch) said there used to be a stop sign, but it was taken down.
A. The road is not owned by the town of Leland, said David A. Hollis, town manager.
“It is still privately owned and maintained by the developer of the property. We received the notification from probably the same person and have forwarded it on to the developer for him to repair,” Hollis said.
