The impetus of this session is the public involvement surrounding the potential development of the privately held 9.3-acre vacant parcel located at the corner of Salter Path Rd and Pine Knoll Blvd but is just one part of a larger study being conducted. The goals for this day-long, hands-on community workshop will be to develop a framework for an ongoing vision that may be used to guide other planning processes like development ordinance updates, land use plans, master plans, and other documents.
As a group, we will refine and agree upon a community vision for possible development goals and objectives of the community, which lists potential opportunities for growth and preservation, and includes a description of what the attendees wish the community to look and feel like in the future. We will utilize techniques to make sure that all members who attend actively participate in the process, and that we have experts on environmental science and design, market analysis, and others in the room. Real-time modeling using computer software will be utilized to display how development scenarios could affect the community.
Facilitating this process is Ms. Ryan Griffith of Eastern Carolina Council. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Policy and a Master’s Degree in Community Planning. Ms. Griffith has extensive training and experience in market analysis and community building, and holds a certification as a National Charrette Institute Facilitator. Other experts on site are to-be-determined.
Although there may be elected officials of the Board of Commissioners or Town advisory board appointees in attendance at this event, it is not, nor should it be interpreted to be, an official meeting of any of those entities.
