Storm Water Management Practices - NCDENR Document
The regulation of land use is a key function of any incorporated municipality. In River Bend this is accomplished through our Subdivision Regulations, Zoning Ordinances, and our Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance. These regulations are consistently applied by the Zoning Administrator (one of the functions of the Town Manager) and the Assistant Zoning Administrator (AZA). The AZA is responsible for all aspects of our zoning and floodplain management efforts and is the point of contact for citizens, builders, developers and other government regulators.
