The program’s expressed mission was “To provide professional assistance to North Carolina’s communities in the planning and management of the physical environment, and to identify methods of resolving problems of anticipated future growth.” A small number of files are from the American Institute of Architects' national UDAP program and highlight cities outside of North Carolina.
Files are arranged alphabetically by city.
