Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Project

Nags Head Town Code Updates

The UDO update is the second phase of FOCUS Nags Head. This project involves updating the Nags Head Town Code into a consolidated Unified Development Ordinance. This will include updates to:

  • Administrative procedures
  • Environmental regulations

The goal is to modernize the code, provide clarification and consistency in the ordinance, and streamline permitting and administrative procedures.
