Oopportunities for public participation are also referenced in NCPC's Submission Guidelines for Site Plans & Development Projects (Section 5. I) and Master Plans (Section 5. I & 5. J).
Federal Capital Improvements Program

NCPC's Environmental and Historic Preservation Policies and Procedures describe the opportunities for public participation when NCPC develops an Environmental Assessment (EA) or Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), or for historic preservation matters. In implementing Environmental Review procedures, NCPC may rely on an EA or EIS developed by a submitting agency. In such instances, NCPC will post the submitting agency’s EA or draft EIS on the NCPC website.
Special Projects and Planning Initiatives
NCPC undertakes a number of important planning initiatives that provide opportunities for public consultation and input as the plans develop. Opportunities for public participation in these planning initiatives are posted on this website. NCPC also advises the public through its monthly Tentative Agenda distribution, E-Newsletters, and special mailings.
