Welcome to Kill Devil Hills
Because Someone Cared - April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
This special display, "Because Someone Cared", will be moved to various locations throughout the county during the month of April to raise awareness about the important role each community member plays in protecting children and strengthening families. The display of nearly 200 children represents the 362 children in Dare County who received protective services through the Department of Social Services in 2013. This project is made possible by the Dare County Department of Social Services, Children and Youth Partnership and other collaborating agencies and organizations that work together throughout the year to make our community a safer and healthier place for children and families.
White Cottage at 2400 North Virginia Dare Trail Designated as Kill Devil Hills Landmark
– The White family was presented a commemorative plaque at the April 11, 2014 Historic Landmarks Open House which drew a crowd of over 150 people. Shown left to right are White family members Christie White Sanders, Ann White Felton, Brenda White, and Glenn White (accepting the plaque); Chair Tanya Young, Jerry Farless and Beverly Boswell, current members of the Kill Devil Hills Historic Landmarks Commission. The White Cottage was constructed in 1955 by Author Chappell and a crew from Belvidere in Perquimans County, NC for Edwin S. White who owned a lumber mill in the town. The structure is located in Virginia Dare Shores Subdivision, which was the first subdivision in the Town of Kill Devil Hills. The Historic Landmarks Commission was developed to identify, preserve and protect the heritage, history, architecture and culture of the Town of Kill Devil Hills. Currently, the inventory of Historic Landmarks includes 25 homes. The Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners appointed the first Commission, which is comprised of 5 citizens of Kill Devil Hills, on August 18, 2004. Designation of local historic landmarks is a process that includes extensive deed research of the property, owner notification, public hearings, and approval by the State Historic Preservation office and also the Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners. For more information call the Kill Devil Hills Planning Department at (252) 449-5318.

Based on the best information available to date, the Town anticipates the municipal tax rate (not the Dare County tax rate) to raise approximately 10% Town wide to pay for sand on our northern ocean beaches.
In addition, oceanfront properties where sand is to be placed should expect their tax rates (again, the municipal tax rate only, not the Dare County tax rate) to double. These taxes would be necessary for a minimum of five years.
