PENDER COUNTY – Pender County is updating the 2016 Collector Street Plan to account for feedback received over the plan’s lifetime and respond to changing infrastructure needs as the county grows.
The updated plan will include requirements for new development to construct roadways meeting specific design criteria at key intervals in the southern and eastern portions of the county in addition to providing policy recommendations for future County action.
“This plan will help ensure transportation infrastructure keeps pace with Pender County’s growing population through clear standards for new development,” explained Travis Henley, Pender County’s Planning and Community Development Director. “State and federal data have consistently ranked Pender County as one of the fastest-growing counties in North Carolina.”
Public input is a key part of the update process, with an online survey available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PenderCountyStreetsPlan Members of the public who are concerned about transportation infrastructure in southern and eastern Pender County are strongly encouraged to respond.
This project is made possible through a partnership with the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization and WSP Consulting, who are assisting with the planning process.
