Protect what the community loves and add what it needs
On April 5, 2017, the Town Council initiated a project to protect what the community loves and add what it needs by re-writing its Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO) and refining the Future Land Use Map.
A separate project for updating the LUMO, called 160D after the North Carolina General Statue, is in its initial stages, and a separate web page for that project will be established in the near future. If you are interested in proposed LUMO revisions as a result of 160D, please check back regularly for updates on this project.
