Montreat Minute for July 23, 2021

Sign Update

Last month we shared about the new sign ordinance and that yard signs are permitted, but they must be on your own property and not in the Town right-of-way. For the full story from the June 14 Special Montreat Minute, CLICK HERE.

Related to signs, the Montreat Police Department has received reports that yard signs have been taken from private property recently. Just a reminder that such action is considered misdemeanor larceny. Please respect people’s right to display signs on their own private property.

Final Summer Club Event on Wednesday, July  28

The final Summer Club activity of the season will be a picnic on Wednesday, July 28 at 6:00pm. It will be held in Gaither Fellowship Hall. Please bring a dish to share. Drinks will be provided.

The Summer Club is extremely grateful to Will Graham, Ron Vinson, Nancy Midgett and John Casper for the three wonderful programs they provided.

Please Watch Your Speed

Just a reminder that the Town-wide speed limit is 20 miles per hour, unless otherwise posted. Portions of Assembly Drive are 30 mph, but only for short distances out of the central Town area. We have seen a significant increase in traffic (vehicle and foot) this summer season. Unfortunately, higher rates of vehicle speed are also a part of the increase. Montreat Police are on patrol to ensure the safety of all. Thanks for helping keep Montreat safe.
