2018-2019 CAMA Land Use Plan

About the Plan


Planning Process

The Town of North Topsail Beach has initiated the preparation of an updated CAMA Land Use Plan for the North Topsail Beach 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 new and strategic public initiatives supported by the community.


Citizen Participation

Recognizing that a collaborative effort with the public is essential, the initial step in the planning process was the adoption of a Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) by the North Topsail Beach Board of Aldermen. The Town of North Topsail Beach Planning Board will supervise the preparation of the CAMA Land Use Plan.
