Join a Board

There are currently four seats on the Morehead City Planning Board that will expire on August 15, 2021 and one in-City seat open on the Morehead City Board of Adjustment. The first three Planning are in-City seats and the fourth is an extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) seat.  

Individuals interested in serving on the Planning Board or Board of Adjustment as an in-City member are required to complete a Citizen Participation application. Applications may be obtained from City Clerk Cathy Campbell at (252) 726-6848 x139 or by clicking HERE.  

For extra-territorial jurisdiction seats, a Carteret County application is required and a City application is encouraged. This is because extra-territorial members are appointed by the County Commissioners. Historically, the City Council made recommendations to the Carteret County Commissioners for ETJ appointments. The contact for that application is County Clerk Rachel Hammer at (252) 728-8450 x8002.
