(August 2019 News) On Monday, August 19, 2019, Carteret County Commissioners will hear from Duke Energy officials on a report outlining the need for an industrial park at Radio Island. This report is part of the “Duke Energy Site Readiness Program” which outlines their plans to develop industrial parks around North Carolina to aid in their readiness programs.
This readiness program is likely due in part to hurricane and tropical storm events that happen in Carteret County which will allow Duke Energy to already have resources stored here.
Any industrial park on Radio Island will require a special use permit. Currently the NC Port Authority owns the property in question. Commissioners will hear about traffic ingress and egress in to the island, structural components of the park, and other information.
