The urban services boundary (USB) was established in conjunction with the creation of the 2006 New Hanover County Coastal Area Management Act Plan. The urban services boundary is a tool that is used to help NHC decision makers determine possible development and the cost of providing infrastructure like water and sewer. Land within the USB is identified as either having urban services or land that may receive urban services if developed. Land outside the USB is land New Hanover County does not intend to extend urban services to.
