About the Board

The Board of Adjustment serves as a quasi-judicial board to consider special exception, variance and appeal petitions. The term “quasi-judicial” means that the Board follows a decision making process similar to a court of law. Evidence is presented by Town Staff, as well as by proponents (including the petitioner) and opponents of a petition. Based on all evidence presented, as well as requirements established by the North Carolina General Statutes, the Board will decide whether to approve, approve with conditions or deny a petition. Because the Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board, the Town Board of Commissioners cannot consider these petitions. Any interested party may appeal a decision of the Board of Adjustment in Wake County Superior Court.
