Dare County wants your opinion on land-use plan

Setbacks, lot sizes, floating homes and wetlands protection are a few of the topics on a new survey the Dare County Planning Department is asking residents and property owners to fill out online.

As one of North Carolina’s 20 coastal counties, Dare is required to prepare and update comprehensive land-use plans for participation in the NC Division of Coastal Management’s CAMA program. Work on the update is currently underway by the planning department and planning board. 

“Citizen participation is a large component of the land use plan update and I hope that folks will take a few minutes to go to our webpage and complete the survey,” said Donna Creef Dare County Planning Director. 

The survey can be found at darenc.com/landusesurvey. The results will be analyzed and used in the drafting of the Dare County land-use plan update. Unincorporated Dare County includes the communities of Martin’s Point, Colington, Hatteras Island, Wanchese, East Lake, Manns Harbor, Roanoke Island and Stumpy Point.
