Members of the SISPC are selected by both the Planning Board and the Board of Commissioners.
The SISPC is a subcommittee of the Planning Board, and was established by the Board of Commissioners prior to 1990. It is the responsibility of the SISPC to provide the Planning Board with a list of streets and drainage projects recommended for improvement each year. The Planning Board then finalizes the list and forwards its recommendations to the Board of Commissioners.
The SISPC is also responsible for updating the Town's Street Improvements Master Plan which is the plan for upgrading and improving the street system of Kill Devil Hills on a "pay-as-you-go" basis. The SISPC is also responsible for updating the Town's Stormwater Management Plan, and serves as the Town's Floodplain Management Committee (and they also update the Town's Floodplain Management Plan).
