Growth Management

Critical to all strategic priorities and issues facing the County is the ability to effectively manage growth and development. Last year the Board authorized the initiation of several planning initiatives, including updating the County’s land use ordinances into a Unified Development Ordinance, updating the County’s comprehensive plan, and developing three local area plans for critical growth areas (Hampstead, US 421 Corridor, and Rocky Point). The timing of this could not have been better, such that the County will have modern yet business friendly land use plans and policies in place once the strong growth patterns return.

The County is also involved in area transportation planning efforts with the RPO and MPO groups. An overlay corridor plan has been completed in the last year for the US 17 corridor, and will be incorporated into the new land use ordinance and plans.
