There's actually 2 levels of requirements for golf carts in Southport. They may be operated on city-maintained streets as long as they are insured and have certain safety features and are registered with the City. If one wishes to also operate the golf cart on state-maintained streets (i.e. Howe Street, Moore Street, W. 9th Street, W. West Street, etc.) then the golf cart must also be registered with NCDMV and display a license plate.

SJP is not a golf cart community. If that is what you are looking for, not the place.

The Landings outside Savannah has 6 golf courses, is lovely, and EVERYONE has carts there. People actually are a bit competitive over how decked out and super-charged their carts are.

Golf carts are allowed in SJP under limited eligibility.

From the POA rules:

4.1.2 Off-Road Vehicles
No off road vehicles of any type, including but not limited to, go carts, dirt bikes, and all-terrain vehicles,
shall be operated within St. James Plantation, except those vehicles used for permitted construction and
development, golf course maintenance, common property maintenance, and related purposes.

4.1.3 Use of Golf Carts; Crossing Rules
No golf carts shall be operated on any streets within St. James Plantation, except by golfers on designated
crossings and connections between portions of a golf course, and use by golf course personnel for course
management of related purposes. A handicapped property owner may operate a golf cart on streets in St.
James Plantation if (a) the golf cart bears a valid license plate and registration sticker issued by the State
27 of North Carolina; (b) the license plate is a handicapped license plate or the golf cart bears a
handicapped windshield placard issued by the State of North Carolina; and (c) the operator has a valid,
state-issued operator’s license. Golf carts shall stop before entering the street and wait if any vehicles are
approaching.

The point, Little Stones, is that there are 2 definitions of "street legal", only one of which requires a license plate. Now please argue some more...

I was reading the Draft State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for 2019 (FY-2020-2029), if I am reading it correctly it looks like the construction of NC-211 from Midway/Middleton to NC-87 has been delayed to FY-2022 with equal funding in FY-2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025. I had read earlier that the construction contract was be be let this January.

I'm not sure, bu my understanding is that the work on the interchanges at Midway and Long Beach Roads will start first. Perhaps that work is funded separately from the widening project, which will start after the interchange work.

"N.C. 211 project

Widening of N.C. 211 from two to four lanes has been delayed again, this time by four months, reported Chad Kimes, DOT engineer.

Including two overpasses and partial interchanges, the work is expected to cost $122-million and considerably eliminate congestion for decades to come.

The majority of the new road will have two 12-foot-wide travel lanes separated by a 30-foot grassy median. Parts of the road will be raised by as much as five feet to keep it out of the 100-year floodplain.

Work will begin at Midway Road (N.C. 906) and end at N.C. 87 in Southport. There will be curbs, gutters and sidewalks from about Walmart to N.C. 87.

DOT expected to let the contract in April but will now hold off until August. “There’s just a ton of utilities that have to be moved,” Kimes said. DOT is also making some budget adjustments that affect the timing, he said.

Many contractors are receiving extensions on paving because of extended wet weather. By seeking bids in August, DOT hopes to receive lower and more competitive bids, Kimes said.

Work on the interchanges won’t start until the fall of 2020. The entire project is expected to take about four years."
