Unified Development Ordinance 

A unified development ordinance regulates land use and form, growth, and development. It includes zoning regulations, which divide the Town into different zoning districts and generally governs the location, size, and type of development in each district, as well as subdivision regulations. A UDO also establishes the process for reviewing development proposals and includes standards for different aspects of development, like parking, landscaping, the layout of streets and blocks, lighting, signage, building design, and environmental protection.   

A Table of Permitted Uses is a helpful tool used to more easily identify which types of development and land uses may occur within a particular zoning district. 

Below you will find the most current Unified Development Ordinance and Table of Permitted Uses for the Town of Carthage, NC. These two documents combine to form the full Unified Development Ordinance, however, for your convenience and ease of use we have separated the two documents here. If you have questions please contact Town Hall Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or email one of the following staff members for assistance.
