Sam Newell gets new name

A section of Sam Newell Road in Matthews has been changed to North Trade Street.

New street signs went up last week for the section of road between Matthews Street and N.C. 51, which adds the area into the town’s downtown overlay district. Town staff mailed notices to the 55 property owners affected and only heard from one person, who was in favor of the renaming, according to a staff memo.
