Carteret County is looking to the community for input on long-range transportation needs.

A public information meeting on the plan will take place on March 7 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Fort Benjamin Park in Newport.

Representatives with the county and state Department of Transportation will be available to answer questions and accept comments; there will be no formal presentation.

The plan explores the area’s future transportation needs based on factors that include population, economic conditions, traffic trends and patterns of land development.

The study did include bicycle, pedestrian and public transportation.

An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to eastern North Carolina in 2019 to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of kiddo cuddling, reading, and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
