Q. A significant tract of land is being cleared on the northwest corner of the intersection of Interstate 140 and U.S. 17 near Poplar Grove. What is being planned for this tract?

A.  “Based on the location description, I believe the reader is referring to the Stephens Pointe high density project located at the western end of Stephens Church Road in the Kirkland Community,” said Sam Burgess, subdivision administrator for the New Hanover County Department of Planning and Inspections.

The 192-unit apartment development was approved as a special use permit by the Board of County Commissioners in November 2012, he said.

A proposal for an apartment complex nearby, Futch Creek Village, was turned down by the county.
