Watching the videos, the bikes are okay. Having ridden a Limebike (and given full corporate license to 'try and destroy it'), the bikes are okay. Stupid kids gonna be stupid kids.

A McDonald's there would be impecciable, bc the middle of Greenville and Farmville is just farmland and there's like nothing there. Widen 264 to a boulevard and add nice fun party and some interesting food and offices!

Imagine the effort it took to do this!

But in all seriousness, students seem to be riding these everywhere. The grid is covered with them and I've even seen them out as far as Target. One less car on the road near campus is always a blessing.

I would love to see Greenville or Wilmington get direct flights to Bermuda.

NCDOT is holding a public meeting on April 3 to discuss widening 14th Street between Red Banks and Fire Tower roads.

https://apps.ncdot.gov/newsreleases/...s.aspx?r=15009

Quote:
The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on a proposal to widen 14th Street between Red Banks Road and Fire Tower Road into four lanes with a median, additional turn lanes, bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, at the Alice Keene District Park at 4561 Country Home Road in Greenville. Interested residents may attend at any time during the meeting, as no formal presentation will be made. NCDOT representatives will be available to provide information and answer questions. The opportunity to provide written comments will also be provided.

The project would improve traffic flow and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.

The public can view a map displaying the location and design of the project on the NCDOT website.

If someone is unable to attend the meeting, they can still get project information or provide comments by contacting NCDOT Project Manager Rachelle Beauregard at rlbeauregard@ncdot.gov or (919) 239-7168. All comments received by May 3 will be considered as the DOT refines the design proposal.

That was awful, but not surprising. Even less surprising is Brock Letchworth stonewalling the EC and covering the city’s ass.

Matt McMahon’s comments about the local media was spot on. Does GFR and the city really have so much clout that the TV stations willingly protect them by not touching the story with a 10ft. pole? There’s no way in hell WNCT or WITN are unaware of this and I doubt the Daily Reflector would’ve mentioned anything recently if the study had not come about. If this had been in the Triangle, WRAL would’ve been all over it like flies on ****. Hell, 20 years ago WNCT would’ve been all over GFR.

The EC deserves a medal for this.

The continuing silence by the city is unsettling. It's time for our new Mayor to exercise his leadership voice.


Of the three local TV channels, I'd say Ch. 12 has the most ability to perform an investigation, but they're more New Bern/Jacksonville oriented.

While I like Ch. 9's meteorologists, their news people couldn't investigate how babies are made.
