New Hanover County is creating the first Comprehensive Plan for the County. This will be a document, used as a guide, to address our county’s current development trends, determine a vision for how the community would like to see New Hanover County develop over the next twenty five years, and determine a plan for how to achieve this vision. The Comprehensive Plan will address six cross-cutting themes; a Livable Built Environment, Harmony with Nature, Responsible Regionalism, Interwoven Equity, Healthy Community, and a Resilient Economy. We encourage you to participate in this process. Please browse this site to see how you can get involved or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
