Planning Board/Board of Adjustment

The Planning Board is an advisory board to City Council, which makes recommendations concerning proposed rezonings, zoning ordinance text amendments, conditional use permit applications and special use permit applications.  The board establishes procedures and standards for the development and subdivision of land within the territorial jurisdiction of Reidsville.

The Board of Adjustment is a "Quasi-Judicial" Board.  The board's responsibilities are to hear appeals from the review and any order, requirement or decision made by the Zoning Enforcement officer, to grant Special Use Permits as required by the zoning ordinance and to grant variances from the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance when practical difficulties or unnecessary hardships result from carrying variance requests and appeals from the Zoning Ordinance.  The Community Development Managers serves as the Zoning Enforcement Officer for the City.
