Planning Board of Adjustment
New Planning Board of Adjustment
At the regular meeting held on March 21, 2023, Town Council combined the Planning Board and Board of Adjustment into a single Planning Board of Adjustment.  At the regular meeting held on May 16, 2023. Town Council appointed 7 regular Planning Board of Adjustment (PBOA) members to review and vote on Planning Board items. Five of the seven members will review and vote on Board of Adjustment (BOA) items with the two remaining members serving as BOA alternates.
Planning Board (legislative matters)
Advisory decisions are made by the planning board.  The planning board reviews ordinance amendments prior to the governing board and offers advice on the consistency of the change with the comprehensive plan.  They also prepare and recommend changes to the comprehensive plan, review subdivision plats, and facilitate citizen engagement in the planning process.

Board of Adjustment (quasi-judicial matters)
Quasi-judicial decisions are made by the Board of Adjustment.  These decisions include applications/petitions for variances, special use permits and appeals of staff decisions.  Quasi-judicial hearings require sworn testimony from the applicant and persons directly and substantially affected by the outcome of the case.  The board makes their decision based on competent and substantial evidence presented by the parties to the case.
