Maple-Barco Small Area Plan
Currituck has a long, rich history that is intimately tied to the fertile agricultural land and pristine waters. This area of the county encompassing portions of Maple and Barco, is one of the primary centers in the County. Maple and Barco are centrally located in the mainland portion of the County at the intersection of Highways 158 and 168.
In addition, Maple is unique because it is home to the Currituck County Airport and many other major community facilities. Due to this area’s central geographic locations, accessibility to main transportation corridors, and the presence of the airport, this area has the potential to emerge as a principle community center for the mainland.
The purpose of the Maple-Barco Small Area Plan (PDF) is to balance growth and economic expansion with the integrity and character of the existing community.
