Land Use Plan Survey

Kitty Hawk is updating its Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Imagine Kitty Hawk 2050 will guide growth and development over the next 10-20 years. Your input is important in order to inform the vision, goals, priorities, policies, and recommendations of the plan.  The survey is closed.

What is a Land Use Plan?

The Town of Kitty Hawk is updating its existing Land Use Plan through community engagement. The Land Use Plan will serve as a guide for elected and appointed officials and Town staff making significant land use decisions and in directing policy and public investment. The development of this Plan will be driven by the community and will include the state-required elements of a CAMA Land Use Plan as well as consideration of local elements that preserve community character.

The Land Use Plan will also include a Future Land Use Map depicting the intended development pattern for the Town’s future. The map will be developed to help achieve the community’s vision for the Town. The tentative project schedule is below.

How can YOU get involved?

Over the next several months, the project will include many opportunities for providing input, including a project kickoff public meeting, a community survey, and additional public meetings. Be sure to check back for updates! For now, start thinking about and discussing the following with your family and friends:

  • What do I love about Kitty Hawk?
  • What is my biggest concern for the future of Kitty Hawk?
  • What would I like to see improved in Kitty Hawk?
Spread the Word

Please help spread the word by talking with your neighbors and friends. In many communities, a land use plan update only happens every 5-10 years, so it is important to make your voice heard now! You can also look out for information from the Town or submit your email address to be notified about future events or meetings.
