Windsor, N.C., is a town of about 3,600 people along the Cashie River, in Bertie County in northeastern North Carolina. Parts of the town lie in the 100-year and 500-year floodplain.
Hurricane Matthew damaged about 60 homes, out of about 1,110 total housing units. On Oct. 9, 2016, the Cashie rose to 17 feet, more than double its flood stage.
The North Carolina State University College of design proposed multiple housing types for relocation, elevation and further protection of future structures in town, as well as green space designation, through the HomePlace document.
