The Town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina is requesting proposals be submitted from professional planning consulting firms for the purpose of updating the Town’s Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA) Land Use Plan (LUP). The Town is interested in engaging a project planning and management firm with the ability to be the lead agency in this project with assistance from Planning Department staff on components of this project.
Kill Devil Hills has an existing LUP certified by the North Carolina Coastal Resources Commission (CRC) in 2000. Since the last LUP update, Kill Devil Hills has continued to experience significant growth and unique development challenges. A copy of the 1997 certified LUP, as well as a complete scope and purpose for this project, may be reviewed online at www.kdhnc.com.
The Town expects the firm hired to have considerable experience in the areas of coastal and resort planning and design, particularly in the Outer Banks region. Any firm submitting their proposals for consideration shall include a demonstrated ability to complete projects within targeted time frames and budgetary constraints. Negotiations of a fixed rate or ceiling of costs for services will be conducted. Interested firms must submit a letter of interest outlining their qualifications in accordance with the attached submission requirements to:

An aeration fountain was installed at the Aviation Park Frog Pond. Unfortunately, there had been a dramatic increase with dying turtles and fish, this year. The Town is hoping that by aerating the pond the problem can be avoided in the future.
