The Town’s Secondary and Cumulative Impacts Master Mitigation Plan (SCIMMP) (PDF) describes the existing environmental conditions within its planning area, evaluates the SCI for its proposed infrastructure, and identifies mitigation programs which address the SCI. Inclusion of all infrastructure plans in a single document, the SCIMMP provides a comprehensive review of the Town’s growth projections and infrastructure designed to support that growth.
For future infrastructure projects proposed by the Town that require an environmental review under the North Carolina State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), an environmental assessment (EA) or environmental impact statement (EIS) will be developed to examine the direct impacts of the project. The EA or EIS will reference the SCIMMP for secondary and cumulative indirect impacts. This plan is required to be updated every two years.
