Town Code Text Amendment Process

The process utilized to make changes to the Town's regulations is called a Town Code Text Amendment.  Text amendments are typically initiated by Town Staff but can also be requested by the public.  

Process


The procedure for amending the Town Code is much the same as the process for a zoning map amendment.  Please click HERE for additional information on that process. 

​Public Initiated Text Amendments


If a member of the public is interested in applying for a Town Code text amendment, a pre-submittal meeting with the Planning Department is required prior to submittal of an application.  This meeting allows Town Staff to provide assistance with the review process and schedule.  Please contact the Planning Department at (919)552-1429 to schedule a pre-submittal meeting.  

If requested by a citizen, as the applicant, the citizen is required to be at both the Planning Board and Town Board meetings to present their application.
