The Pitt County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, October 15, 2018, at 6:00pm regarding the proposed Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan and a subsequent amendment to the 2030 Pitt County Comprehensive Land Use Plan. This hearing will be held in the Eugene James Auditorium in the County Administration Building located at 1717 W. 5th Street, Greenville, N.C.
Pitt County, in collaboration with the Greenville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of Greenville, the Town of Ayden, the Town of Winterville, and the NC Department of Transportation, has developed a land use plan that will help guide land use, development and infrastructure decisions along the Southwest Bypass corridor, which is currently under construction. The purpose of this public hearing is to gather public comment and input on the proposed Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan prior to consideration by the Board of County Commissioners. Additionally, in order to avoid conflicting land use policies within the study area of the Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan, the Board will consider an amendment to the official Future Land Use Map in the 2030 Pitt County Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
The final draft of the Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan is available for review at www.pittcountync.gov/SWBypassPlan. For more information on the plan, please contact Eric Gooby, AICP, Senior Planner with Pitt County Planning and Development at 252-902-3250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
