Text amendment updating the 2007 Future Land Use Plan. As a condition of adopting and applying zoning regulations under NCGS 160D, a local government shall adopt and reasonably maintain a comprehensive plan or land-use plan. A comprehensive plan sets forth goals, policies, and programs intended to guide the present and future physical, social, and economic development of the jurisdiction.  A land-use plan uses text and maps to designate the future use or reuse of land. A comprehensive or land-use plan is intended to guide coordinated, efficient, and orderly development within the planning and development regulation jurisdiction based on an analysis of present and future needs.

Text amendment and Map amendment to existing Development Regulations to create a Unified Development Ordinance. Per NCGS 160D-103, a local government may elect to combine any of the development regulations into a unified ordinance. A local government may apply any of the definitions and procedures authorized by law to any or all aspects of the unified ordinance and may employ any organizational structure, board, commission, or staffing arrangement authorized by law to any or all aspects of the ordinance.

The Town Board of Aldermen will consider the recommendations of the Town’s Planning Board when discussing the amendments; however, the Town Board of Aldermen are not bound by any such recommendation and may further modify the text based on public input at or after the hearing without the need to withdraw the currently proposed text and map amendments and notice a new hearing or without the need to return the matter to the Planning Board for further consideration.
