Q. Why are construction crews, stripping away trees is an area that hasn’t had any zoning change? The area north of 17th Street extension, west of George Anderson and south of Robert Hoke Road does not fall into the recent zoning change. Across the street are acres of land that was recently zoned and is in the process of being stripped for development. It looks like someone is taking some liberties with their permit and if it keeps up, it will be too late for anyone to do anything.

A.  That land is owned by Cameron Properties Limited Partnership.

Cameron Properties has a tree removal permit to do minor clearing in the area, said Jim Diepenbrock, a planner for the city of Wilmington.
