Land Use Litigator Video Series: Municipalities in North Carolina

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?

The video can be accessed here.

Mike Thelen practices in Womble, Carlyle’s Real Estate Litigation and Land Use practice group. He regularly represents a wide variety of clients, from local governments to businesses, in land use and land development matters in both state and federal venues throughout North Carolina.
