Town of Emerald Isle

2016 Comprehensive Land Use Plan Update

The Town of Emerald Isle has initiated the preparation of an updated Comprehensive Plan/Land Use Plan for the Emerald Isle planning area.  The final document will serve as comprehensive plan for future public investment to achieve the community’s overall vision.  The intent of this project is to draft a plan that will maintain the positive attributes of the existing Plan, while identifying new and strategic development goals and policies, and also new and strategic public initiatives supported by the community.

Recognizing that a collaborative effort with the public is essential, the initial step in the planning process is the adoption of this Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) by the Emerald Isle Board of Commissioners.


The Town Council approved the Citizen Participation Plan on February 9, 2016.
