The Town of Kitty Hawk is divided into three basic zones: beach zones, villages zones, and Kitty Hawk Woods.  Beach and village zones are broken into residential and commercial zones, with varying degrees of land use intensity.A “BR-1” zone, for example, is a beach residential zone, level 1. This is the lowest intensity residential use in the beach area of town. A “VC-3” zone, for example, is a village commercial zone, level 3. This is the most intense use of the land in the village part of town.

If you have any questions about which zone you live in or are interested in purchasing property in, please contact Town Planner Rob Testerman, at 252-261-3552 or via email at
