Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment ("BOA") is a citizen committee appointed by the Town Board of Commissioners consisting of 7 Regular Members, and 3 Alternate Members comprised of citizens residing in the Town limits and the Town's extraterritorial jurisdiction ("ETJ").  This Board handles issues that arise from the enforcement of the Huntersville Zoning Ordinance on individual properties; such as variance requests for relief from the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance, and appeals from determinations or decisions made by Planning Staff.  The Board of Adjustment also acts as the Water Review Board for Density Averaging Certificates.  Requests are heard in a quasi-judicial (court style) manner in which sworn testimony is given and decisions are based on facts and evidence presented. If interested in serving on the Board an application can be found here.  


The Board of Commissioners accepts applications for the Board of Adjustment.  If interested, please submit a completed application (see link above) to Michelle Haines, Board Secretary, at  Applications can also be picked up from the Planning Department located in the Town Center, 3rd Floor, 105 Gilead Road during normal working hours.  Thanking you in advance for your interest in serving your Town.  


The BOA hearings are scheduled on the second (2nd) Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall location, unless otherwise changed upon compliance with the Open Meeting Law.  All applications to be heard by the Board of Adjustment are due in complete form along with the filing fee by the deadline (2nd Tuesday of each month by 5:00 p.m.).   An application will be placed on the next available Agenda.  The filing fee is non-refundable.
