Land Use Plan Survey Results


Thank you Kill Devil Hills for participating in the survey!!!

As part the of the Land Use Plan Update, the Board of Commissioners wanted to conduct a public opinion survey, even though no longer required by the CAMA Land Use Pan Regulations. The Board wanted to gauge public opinion on several key issues facing the Town now and in the future. 

The 2017 Land Use Plan Survey was conducted using the online survey tool, Survey Monkey. There were filters applied to the survey to prevent multiple surveys being completed from a single IP address. The survey consisted of 30 questions previously reviewed and approved by the Board of Commissioners. Included in those question were four open-ended questions for the public to freely express their opinion. The survey was released online at the end of August 2017 and was closed early October 2017. During that time, 1,625 survey responses were completed.

Below is a link to the data results from the 2017 Land Use Plan Survey. Each Question is broken down two ways: 

  • First, graphically in a bar graph with the legend at the bottom. 
  • Second, statistically, with percentages and actual survey numbers. 

The four comment questions have been given to HCP Consultants, the Town's Land Use Plan Update consultant, to sort and assess. The responses will be discussed further as the update process moves forward.
