Lunch & Learn Planning Session Scheduled By Duck Planning Board
March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The Town of Duck Planning Board invites the public to attend a series of “Lunch & Learn” sessions taking place this spring. These hour-long, online training modules were produced by the UNC School of Government to help educate local councils, boards, and decision-makers about the standards and processes involved in making decisions on land use applications. The Duck Planning Board has worked with the Community Development Department to organize a series of “Lunch & Learn” sessions to view these online training modules which will cover two topics per session, as listed below. Sessions will take place at the Paul F. Keller Meeting Hall located at 1200 Duck Road from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. beginning on Wednesday, March 23, with additional sessions on Thursday, April 21, and Thursday, May 19.
Although developed for local councils, boards, and decision-makers, the sessions will be open to anyone who wants to learn more about the legal and procedural requirements that all communities in North Carolina must follow when reviewing development applications. Scheduled during lunch hour to accommodate working members’ schedules, attendees are welcome to bring a lunch or simply listen and participate in the sessions. For more information, you can contact Joe Heard, Director of Community Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252.255.1234.

Introduction to Land Use Decisions – Communities in North Carolina deal with many different types of approval processes when making land use decisions. This training module generally outlines the processes for adopting plans, zoning/rezoning properties, conditional use permits, variances, and subdivisions.
Adopting and Amending the Ordinance – As needs and interests change over time, communities in North Carolina may be asked to consider proposals to rezone properties or for text amendments to development standards. This training module explores the roles of the Planning Board and Town Council in reviewing these types of applications.
