The Sneads Ferry community is facing growth pressures from a variety of angles. In recognition of the need for long range land use planning and a coordinated transportation strategy, Onslow County and the Jacksonville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization are partnering on a balanced planning process that blends future transportation needs with a realistic land use vision.
It’s important for the community to be committed to the planning process and willing to help shape study outcomes. It’s also important that the planning process be centered around an agreed upon vision. The Blue Ribbon Panel worked with the community to create a vision to guide the plan. See the Resources page for more information.
So far, more than 500 individuals have participated in the planning process through the website, online questionnaires, and public meetings. The response by the community has been outstanding. The finishing touches are being put on the Sneads Ferry Community Plan workbook. Once the workbook is ready, you will be able to provide feedback directly through the website.

Blue Ribbon Panel
The planning process for the Sneads Ferry Community Plan is being guided by a Blue Ribbon Panel composed of residents, members of the business community, and other stakeholders. The panel was designated by the Onslow County Board of Commissioners. Members are tasked with providing feedback and guidance to the project team as well as contributing their experience and knowledge to the planning process. For more information, please see the Resources page.
