The Oak Island Town Council will be voting on requiring Neighborhood Meetings for proposed major subdivision or land use change at the April 14th meeting. This proposal was suggested by a member of Town Council and was recently approved by the Town Planning Board. Neighborhood meetings are common in many new Unified Development Ordinances (including Brunswick County’s) and provide a way for the developer to hold an informational meeting for neighboring landowners. Currently these meetings are only required for all modifications to an approved or existing Planned Unit Development or Major Subdivision. As currently drafted, the revised ordinance would call for a pre-application conference with the Planning Administrator. Then, the developer would be required to hold a neighborhood meeting prior to submitting an application for rezonings or Conditional Use Permits, in addition to PUDs and Major Subdivisions.
