May 19, 2021 – Morehead City Council members heard arguments on a request to rezone 23 acres of land to make way for subdivision development.

During the meeting, council members agreed to request with NCDOT that the speed limit from the intersection with Highway 70 extending out to McCabe Rd be decreased to 45 miles per hour.
