The Planning Department administers all zoning and subdivision regulations for all property within the Town's planning jurisdiction, which includes the corporate (town) limits as well as the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). For the past few years, the Planning Department has been hard at work developing plans, which are designed to work together, to help move one of the fast-growing towns in North Carolina forward. Growth is inevitable but planning for it will ensure that Fuquay-Varina maintains the quality-of-life attributes that make it such a desirable place to call “home.”
The 2020 Census kicked off on April 1 and will wrap up in late October. The Census is required by the Constitution and is used to determine issues such as:
- How federal funding for projects is allocated for the next ten years.
- The number of seats each state gets in Congress.
- How local and state officials determine districts such as congressional, legislative, and school.
- Helping to plan for transportation, housing, public works, and community programs.
