Planning & Zoning Cases

The Planning Unit processes and reviews all Planning applications as per the County approved review timeline. A comprehensive review is conducted by the required departments, agencies, community organizations and divisions as deemed necessary. Staff is continually in communication with the applicant to go over the comments and or corrections. Once the application has met the development standards and minimum code requirements, the item is placed on an agenda to be heard first by the Planning and Zoning Commission and then by the Board of Supervisors. The Planning and Zoning Commission will hear the application at a public hearing and make a formal recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. Approximately one month later, the application will be heard by the Board of Supervisors. The Board will make a final decision on whether to approve the application.

In addition, the Planning Unit also processes Variance and Appeals requests through the Board of Adjustment per Section 207 of the Zoning Ordinance.
