--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RALEIGH –The state Division of Coastal Management is co-hosting a southern regional planning workshop to discuss future directions for the N.C. Coastal Area Management Act Land Use Planning Program.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Oct. 23 at the New Hanover County Government Center, 230 Government Center Drive, Wilmington. The state coastal agency is co-hosting the workshop with the Business Alliance for a Sound Economy and the North Carolina Coastal Federation.

The meeting will be an opportunity for local planning staff and elected officials to engage with other community leaders and stakeholders, and collaborate with state planning staff to provide input on the state’s coastal planning program.

Local governments in Brunswick, Carteret, New Hanover, Onslow and Pender counties and their respective municipalities are invited to participate. Elected officials and local professional planning staff will have an opportunity to discuss past experiences with the CAMA Land Use Planning Program under existing state planning guidelines. Participants will work with staff from the state Division of Coastal Management to consider new opportunities for technical assistance, streamlined plan reviews, and reduced local planning burdens through improved coordination with other planning requirements and activities.

The workshop is free, but registration is required. Visit www.nccoastaltraining.net to register and download an agenda.

A separate workshop for northern coastal counties and municipalities is being planned for early 2014.
