Havelock’s incoming planning director counts dealing with the military as part of her strong suit.

Katrina Marshall, former director of planning for Carteret County, starts work in Havelock on Monday when she will be introduced to city commissioners.

"I already have a knowledge and an understanding of the importance of the military and an understanding of how local government works with the military and what local government can do to be a good neighbor," Marshall said in a telephone interview earlier this week. "I understand that there is a compatibility issue definitely. The land use needs to be compatible for the military to also carry out its mission."

Marshall said knowledge of how local government works with the military is one of her assets.

"That’s one of the strengths that I bring to the job. I’ve worked with Tyler Harris of the Community Plans and Liaison Office. I’ve worked with him over the years," Marshall said. "I was also part of what was called the Eastern Carolina Joint Land Use Study and that included the surrounding counties, the local governments and the military. I represented Carteret County on that."

She said the result was air compatibility use zones around Bogue Field along N.C. 24.

Marshall said she was ready to pick up initiatives started by former city planner Scott Chase, who left to work at a private firm in Raleigh.
