County to hold public meetings to discuss "Imagine Currituck"
by CCED, on 10/21/16 12:30 PM
Currituck County staff will host a series of community meetings to discuss the "Imagine Currituck" Land Use Plan update.
These open-house style meetings will be held at various locations throughout the county to encourage participation and feedback from citizens. Meeting locations will include Knott's Island, Corolla, the four-wheel drive section of Carova, and multiple sites on the mainland.
What is the Land Use Plan?
The land use plan is an assessment of what our community is today and a long range outlook of what we would like to be in the future. It is an adopted pollicy document which the Commissioners, staff and citizens use as a guide for making decisions about the physical growth and development of the County.
Communities evolve over time as their populations change. The current Plan was adopted in 2006 and Currituck County has experienced a growth rate greater than 10% since 2006.
Each meeting will include infographics and data, public survey results, maps, and opportunities for citizens to provide feedback and ideas related to Currituck County's future growth.
The first open house meeting is scheduled for October 27 at the Shawboro Ruritan Club. Citizens can attend between 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. to visit the information stations and ask questions to county staff.
