Carteret County Group Wants To Rezone Port

Officials in Morehead City are considering rewording an ordinance to rezone a state port.

Morehead City Mayor Jerry Jones says the town can rewrite the industrial zoning ordinance even though the port is owned by the state.

The clean county coalition wants to reword the ordinance in order to prevent any plans in the future like the sulfur melting facility the PCS Phosphate was planning and then abandoned.

    Amen to the previous comment. I live in Carteret County, and although we thrive for 3-4 months out of the year, most locals struggle during the other months. The CCC only seemed to be people that either had second homes in Carteret County or locals who had plenty of money already and did not care about the others in the community. They also seem to be taking credit for Stopping PCS from building the plant when in fact PCS Phosphate VOLUNTARILY abandoned the project to keep the people of Carteret County happy! No credit seems to be going to them for listening to the concerns of these people and taking a drastic measure to be GOOD NEIGHBORS!

    Thats what Eastern NC needs, stop jobs and close down one of only two ports in NC. Virgina is prowd of you. Lets turn the entire coast into a playground for the rich people from the western part of the state. Locals keep out, you can't afford it!
