OAK ISLAND, NC (WECT) – An Oak Island man is petitioning town leaders. He's upset because he says he can't sell his property because of traffic and noise.
Ray Carroll's house is located on Middleton Boulevard between Swain's Cut Bridge and West Oak Island Drive. Carroll says the traffic from the busy five lane road has changed the environment in his neighborhood. Now, he wants out, but he's facing a gang of challenges along the way.
When Carroll bought the three bedroom home in Oak Island ten years ago, they thought it would be a great place for vacations and fishing trips.
"I love fishing," said Carroll. "At one time I had so much fishing gear in here that you couldn't fit a car in the garage."
