In the latest video installment from the North Carolina Land Use Litigator, John Cooke and Mike Thelen get into the details of that unique political species: the "municipality" (really, the legal name for cities and towns).  In this episode, Mike and John address:

  • What is a "municipality" in North Carolina, and is it different from a "county"?
  • What powers do municipalities possess that general State government lacks, and why is there such a discrepancy between State and municipal powers?
  • What kinds or types of powers do municipalities possess, and how are these powers unique?
  • What are the effective means of working with and/or communicating with a municipality, as a developing entity?
