The Future Land Use Map is intended to steer development patterns to their appropriate locations. The Future Land Use Map presents “Place Types” which represent development patterns that are different from the 2006 CAMA Land Classification Map currently in use. The biggest change is the incorporation of Mixed Use land use classifications. These classification combine retail, residential, commercial and office uses, to create a more sustainable New Hanover County.
The Future Land Use Story Map is an interactive map that allows individuals to explore the future land use map with the ability to toggle between the current land classifications, existing zoning districts, and exceptional resource areas. The online map is intended to be a informative tool to showcase the vision of development in New Hanover County.
