Initiation of process — the property owner most commonly initiates a rezoning. However, rezoning also may be requested by the Board of Commissioners, Planning Board, Board of Adjustment or any resident of the town or its extraterritorial jurisdiction.
Public hearing — the Board of Commissioners is required to hold a public hearing to consider a property owner, applicant or representative’s proposal to use land for purposes other than those permitted by the current zoning classification. The public hearing is scheduled; the time, date and place are advertised; and a sign is posted at the site. The applicant and public may present information to the board at the hearing.
Completion of process — following a public hearing, the request is sent to the Planning Board for review. The board votes and sends its recommendation to the Board of Commissioners, which takes final action on the request.
