Planning Services Division is responsible for guiding Kernersville’s long-range planning efforts and implementation of the development process with the goal of ensuring quality development for Kernersville’s future through the administration of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).  The UDO combines zoning and subdivision regulations, parking and sign regulations, design standards, and land development procedures into one document.

Planning staff reviews all development applications and accompanying plans and makes a recommendation to the Planning Board and the Board of Aldermen on issues pertaining to Kernersville’s future growth and development.
