Tempers flared Monday as dozens of Corolla business owners and residents directed room-clearing anger at Currituck County Commissioners about the proposed Corolla Fun Park.

The applicant is seeking a special use permit for a proposed fun park, which will include a 36-hole miniature golf course, a go-kart track, spin zone, children’s playground area and arcade.

Several opponents attended Monday night’s hearing, only to see it delayed because additional information was brought up by a representative of the applicant, IG Holdings of Kitty Hawk.

“The applicant has asked that we continue item five due to some review issues that arose within the last 45 minutes,” said Commission Chairman Paul O’Neal.

A study is being completed on a toll road across Currituck Sound to the Outer Banks. The state can’t afford that project and would rely on private money to build the toll bridge and highway.

The Mid-Currituck Bridge project is a proposed toll facility connecting the Currituck County mainland with the Outer Banks. To ensure that the project is financed and constructed, the Turnpike Authority is pursing the project as a public-private partnership.  In April 2009, the Turnpike Authority entered into the State’s first public-private pre-development agreement (PDA) for a major transportation project. continue reading…
