Across North Carolina, the clock is ticking for communities to have a comprehensive land use plan. Beginning on July 1, 2022, NC towns and counties must have a reasonably up-to-date plan in order to enforce zoning. The School of Government has two great options to access resources for small towns to begin the planning process:

1)    PlanNC Guidebook: A Practitioner's Guide to Preparing Streamlined Community Plans

This electronic guidebook describes how to prepare an impactful and streamlined plan for the future. In doing so, communities can develop a shared vision that energizes local stakeholders and catalyzes lasting community improvements. The Guidebook describes a seven-step planning process, offers examples from North Carolina communities, and provides detailed templates for each step. It is available for purchase here, on this webpage, as a downloadable zip file for $23. 

2)    PlanNC Guidebook + Learning Community

Purchase of this option grants access to the electronic guidebook, with the added benefits of video introductions of each step of the seven-step process (recordings from a recent PlanNC Workshop), access to discussion forums with other planning professionals, and invitations to monthly PlanNC peer-learning video conference calls. Purchase this option for $215.
