Public meeting to discuss post-Matthew needs

Currituck County citizens may attend a public meeting on February 28 to learn about the North Carolina Resilient Redevelopment Planning (NCRRP) program. This meeting will be held at the Historic Courthouse, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The North Carolina General Assembly established the North Carolina Resilient Redevelopment Planning (NCRRP) program to deliver a roadmap for community rebuilding and revitalization assistance for the communities impacted by Hurricane Matthew. The program empowers communities across the state to prepare locally driven recovery plans to identify redevelopment strategies, innovative reconstruction projects, and other needed actions. These redevelopment plans will be finalized May 2017.

This public meeting will also allow citizens to provide input on damages from the hurricane and discuss needs to rebuild. This is the first of three public meetings where public input is critical to the development of resilient redevelopment strategies specific to Currituck County and for inclusion in the final plan. As a part of these meetings, community feedback and comments will be requested.

For additional information, please contact Mary Beth Newns, Currituck County Emergency Management Director at 252-232-2115.
