The Kill Devil Hills Planning Board approved a zoning amendment request on February 16 from Albemarle & Associates, Ltd. allowing stacked employee parking for hotels and motels.

The amendment permits hotels and motels to enjoy the same standards as restaurants for employee parking, allowing for parking to be arranged in a stacked configuration not to exceed fifteen percent of total required spaces, with a maximum of two stacked parking spaces deep. The spaces must have signage designating that the parking is for employees only. The amendment will go to the Board of Commissioners for final approval.

– Update the enforcement procedures for town code violations.

– Changes in legislative and quasi-judicial procedure and notification requirements.
