Katrina Marshall was former planner in Carteret County

One of those initiatives was recently adopted minimum building maintenance standards as well as a land use plan.

"I understand the board’s recent initiative on that and I look forward to working with them," Marshall said. " … A lot of people have already spent a lot of time and come to the table and worked out what they want Havelock to look like and develop into and I look forward to working with them on those initiatives."

Marshall played a large roll in development of the Down East Conservation Ordinance in Carteret County, which focused on development pressures in the eastern part of the county where there were no zoning regulations.

And she sees opportunities for city plans to develop a recreational area off Slocum Creek.

"It’s definitely very import for the citizens to have a public place that they can come to, particularly in the center of the city. That’s very important," she said. "We will want to continue to create a sense of community and a sense of place, and that’s a great way to do it."

Marshall, who grew up in Raleigh and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from East Carolina University, doesn’t have plans to live in Havelock, but will commute from her home in Emerald Isle, where she lives with her husband and son.

"I am looking forward to working with the community, the citizens and the business owners as well as the military and the elected officials," Marshall said. "I’ve heard it’s a great place, a great community and great citizens, and I just look forward to becoming a part of the community."
