There has been some talk here about the ports in both Wilmington and Morehead. Are there plans to increase capacity in the Morehead port? Is this part of the impetus for I-42? I remember there being some talk of Wilmington's limitations.

It really dissapointed me that they didn't use this map for construction.

Instead, they used http://www.nclandlawyer.com/pdfs/201..._MAPS_ONLY.pdf

I like the first one better rather than 2015 because the first one has the loops at US-13, and the exit ramps have more lanes on them. And the bypass itself doesn't bridge all over minor roads. So, I don't know what the hell NCDOT was thinking...

If they built the bypass with the 2008 map, I would be more happy.

62 pages but well worth looking over for you development lovers. According to this Greenville landconsumption has far outpaced its population growth..

Can we make our city look like this? I kinda want to see some development on the other side of Greenville. And if that happens, Our city can hit 200,000 population. We can lower and clean up the levels of the Tar River and this town can look great!

The other side of the river is inhabitable because it floods every time it rains too hard. The founders of Greenville knew what they were doing when they built on the south side.

Increase the depth of the river and it will stop flooding. Make it like 20 feet or something.

Lol! I dont think thats how it works bud. What excites you about development and makes you want it everywhere? I was once a big fan of big urban development like Chicago and NYC. The skyscrapers looked nice.... however as i got older i realized.... helllll noooo. I would much prefer a quiet country life far from suburban hell. Also, where are greenville residents coming from? I know Greenville is attracting a lot of eastern nc folks. Wonder if its attracting yankees as much or is most of its growth from neighboring counties. I dont think Greenville can reach 200k.... thats a good thing....needs more industry

That would not only cause great environmental damage, it would also cost a fortune. No taxpayers in Greenville would want to foot the bill for doing that ... none. That doesn't mean Greenville won't grow, however. The city really needs to start growing smarter, as indicated in the Horizons 2026 plan Muslim12 previously linked to.

Suburban development consumes huge amounts of land which also requires significantly more tax dollars to provide services for, such as water, sewer, police and fire protection, and schools. Most people like having the amount of space suburban neighborhoods provide. I like it myself. But, I also see the appeal of living in a walkable neighborhood where many of my daily activities could be accomplished by walking. That's the kind of development that has been happening the last twenty years or so in larger cities near the urban core. This is the kind of development that many young people are attracted to today, but it also has an appeal for some of us older folks.

Let's not forget the source of all wealth is from natural resources and human endeavor. Let's use our natural resources wisely so future generations will also be able to benefit from them.
