The Plan Commission’s responsibilities include advising the Town Council on zoning matters, approving primary plats, and amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.

Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals is a 5-member Quasi Judicial body that hears cases on zoning variances and special exceptions. Variances are measured upon the practical difficulty of meeting the standards of the ordinance for a particular site. Special exceptions are uses of land and structure that are not essentially incompatible with the other permitted uses of a zoning district, but which possess characteristics of operation or locational qualities that may require individual review and restriction. Meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00pm at Town Hall.

Applications for projects reviewed by these two bodies can be found here.
