Has anyone heard of Senate Bill 127? If passed, it will attempt to consolidate regional offices and to establish a one‑stop source in each region for citizens and businesses seeking State services at a regional office. They will form seven regional districts. Region VII, consisting of Beaufort, Bertie, Camden, Carteret, Chowan, Craven, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Greene, Hertford, Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, Northampton, Pamlico, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Pitt, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties.

It will be interesting to see if Greenville is chosen for this region. We should be, but ya never know.

It's not really an airport so much as it's just a long runway. The largest aircraft certified to land there are only mid sized jets. The large and jumbo jets can't land there. It's a step up from Pitt Greenville. The trip from Greenville to Kinston isn't exactly a short trip either. And the FAA will be closing down their air traffic control tower there on April 1. Any chance Kinston had of becoming a regional air hub has been crushed. Truth be known, New Bern is actually the busiest airport around and is deserving of getting larger aircraft now. And New Bern is centrally located here in Eastern Carolina between the bigger cities and towns.

Greenville is centrally located in Eastern Carolina as a whole, but New Bern is centrally located between the bigger towns and cities of Greenville, Jacksonville, Kinston, Washington and Morehead City. Actually, Kinston is perfectly located but their "airport" is dying so it's taken out of the picture. Wilson and Goldsboro are easily serviced by RDU so that's out of the equation.

My husband spoke to the Manager of Bonfish Grill last night & he said a Mattress Factory going in there. He said that the are planning on putting Carabba's near the Mall but not sure where.

Actually, I don't think a regional office like that should necessarily go in the largest city in that region...that sounds like a good thing to put in a smaller city that needs "any" jobs. I believe the DEHNR offices are in Washington now, seems like Washington would be a good spot for that because its also centrally located and on Highway 17 and 264.

I agree that either Greenville or Washington are in the running. Those two are centrally located, stretching from Morehead City to Elizabeth City.

I am assuming that you are speaking in regards to passenger carriers, since Kinston has seen the largest airplane in the world multiple times. Both the An225 and its smaller brother, the An124 have landed there. Apparently, Airbus has to do something to get their parts shipped!

A little nugget about the Southwest bypass, it is expected to be built to interstate standards.

The 785 part is a typo, right? I like the route, it ties all our cities together a bit better.
