Pitt County Southwest Bypass Land Use Plan

Market: Civic

Service: Community Planning

Stewart was engaged by Pitt County (in conjunction with Greenville, Ayden, Winterville and NCDOT) to prepare the Southwest Bypass Corridor Land Use Plan. Pitt County and the surrounding area is experiencing growth due to the Southwest Bypass. The bypass improves mobility and alleviates congestion but also presents challenges. Land use policy and regulations currently do address the type, scale and design of non-residential uses typically associated with a transportation facility of the magnitude of the bypass. The intent of the plan is to help local governments take advantage of development opportunities along the corridor. The plan also ensures that future development is managed appropriately and is compatible with existing communities and long term plans for growth in the County and partner municipalities.

The planning effort includeds a scenario planning exercise to determine impacts of different land use policies. Stewart created a custom GIS-based forecasting model created using ArcGIS and CommunityViz to provide build-out forecasts for the effort. The preferred scenario was used as the future land use plan for the county and informs infrastructure and land use decisions for towns as well.
