Duck Site Surveys

Town Council will hold a public hearing this week on amending the zoning ordinance regarding submission of site surveys as they pertain to building and land disturbance permits. The Town’s existing ordinance requires a recent survey dated within 9 months of the application for all building and land disturbance permits. This requirement is the most restrictive of all other Dare County towns, Dare County and Currituck County. The Planning Board agreed that a survey as recent as nine months may be unnecessary to determine compliance with building codes and zoning ordinance requirements for certain types of projects. This requirement has been seen as burden of additional cost and time on owners needing a permit for a small project. Council members will consider removing the nine month requirement and replacing it with administrative guidelines that would define survey requirements.
