Village of Flat Rock, NC

Flat Rock to hold Land Use Plan public meeting Nov. 18 (Nov 5, 2021)



Flat Rock, North Carolina, November 5, 2021—The Flat Rock Planning Board will hold a public meeting for Flat Rock residents and property owners from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Nov. 18 to gather input from the community as they refine the village’s current Comprehensive Land Use Plan, adopted in 2013.

The meeting will be held at Pinecrest Presbyterian Church (1790 Greenville Highway). 

Required for all jurisdictions by the State of North Carolina, a Comprehensive Land Use Plan outlines an area’s vision, intention, goals, objectives, and strategies for future land use, economic development, environmental preservation, housing, infrastructure, transportation, parks and recreation, agriculture, and more. This Plan paints a picture of the aspirations and needs the community has in terms of growth and development in the years ahead for the place they call home.  

In order to accurately represent citizens’ interests and be useful for decision-making, input from village residents is vital. This public meeting is the opportunity for the Flat Rock community to influence the content and direction of the Village Plan for the foreseeable future. While it is not a zoning or regulatory document, the Plan expresses the guiding principles upon which land-use decisions are based and contains policies that elected and appointed officials, and village staff will follow to guide development and determine the use of required village resources.

A copy of the current Comprehensive Land Use Plan is available for public inspection during normal business hours at the Flat Rock Village Hall, 110 Village Center Drive, and online at 

Comments will be collected at the public meeting. Written comments can be sent via email to and should include the commenter's name, street address, and phone number, or they may also be dropped off in person at the Village Hall.
