No plans yet to re-name beach access for Wesley Belisle

In the aftermath of the drowning of 4-year-old Wesley Belisle, many have approached Kitty Hawk town leaders about the possibility of changing the name of the Lillian Street beach access to “Wesley Street.”

Kitty Hawk Mayor Gary Perry says staff has been looking into it and they “have a good handle on some good points versus detractors.”

Town Manager Andy Stewart said the town’s clerk is looking into the background of the Lillian Street name, but there are no plans right now to change it.

“Up until today, the town’s police and fire department’s main focus was to recover the child.  This is not to say that there will not be something created or established in the future in his honor, however, town staff feels it is important to allow this family the time and space necessary to begin the healing process.”
