Hyde County Chamber Activities
The Hyde County OPED met with members of the Hyde County Chamber of Commerce to review signage that the Chamber plans on displaying at the intersection of Hwy 264 and NC 45. This project is in conjunction with the Belhaven Chamber of Commerce and the US 264 Association. The Hyde Chamber is also working with NC DOT to replace and add additional signage at the US 264 turn in Manns Harbor to increase awareness and traffic on that route. Both projects are an effort to facilitate travel and tourism in Hyde County. Please see attachment of the 264/45 proposed signage as well as a pictorial display of the Chamber’s request to NC DOT for signage in Manns Harbor.
The Planner will be attending the May Issues Luncheon on May 10, 2013 in Ocracoke. The Planner will also be attending a workshop presented by Peggy Birkemirier of the NC Community Foundation on funding available for Chamber activities on April 30, 2013. In addition, the Planner will present an update on current projects to the Chamber Board of Directors at their regular meeting May 14, 2013. Barbara Garrity-Blake with the Coastal Voices Heritage project will present to the Board of Directors at the May meeting as well.
