Meeting Scheduled To Discuss Morehead City Port Development

The state port in Morehead City will be the topic of discussion Tuesday night after leaders abandoned plans to build a sulfur-melting facility.

The meeting at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City will focus on the port's development. The meeting is open to the public. An open house runs from 4 to 6 p.m., followed by a public comment period.

The event is part of the state's maritime strategy project, which includes position North Carolina as a portal to the global maritime economy.

      The ships would be too big, make too much noise, blow too much diesel smoke, or the wrong color.

    That port has been there, operational, for how many years? Since the civil war? And now there is this extreme urgency to develop it further? I mean, look at the aerial photo; the place is huge. Somebody sees a 'honey pot' there, and wants to cash in on it.

    People of Cartaret County: You just told your largest user of the port "NO" we don't want your facility here and now you are trying to attract new business. You people need to think before you speak and know what you are talking about when you do so. Your seafood processing plants stink worse than melting sulfur.
