Zoning Board







Under North Carolina law each municipality that enforces zoning regulations is required to have a Zoning Board of Adjustment. The Zoning Board of Adjustment consists of seven members, four from Weaverville’s ETJ and three from inside Weaverville. Two of the seven members will serve as alternates. The term of office of each member and alternate member of the Zoning Board of Adjustment shall be for three years.


While the powers and duties of the Zoning Board of Adjustment are outlined in state statutes the primary responsibilities of the Zoning Board of Adjustment are: hearing and deciding appeals where an order, requirement, or decision of the Zoning Administrator is alleged to be in error; hear and decide upon requests for variances from the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance; and hear and decide upon requests for special exceptions.


Membership on this board takes a special commitment because the Zoning Board of Adjustment conducts their hearing in accordance with judicial rules of procedure and decisions can be publicly unpopular as rulings of the Board must be made based upon strict interpretation of applicable laws and not upon public opinion or desire. The members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment shall receive no compensation for their services.



Members: Bob Embler(O), Chair, Susan Ballard(I), Vice Chair, Karen Ruffing(I), Chris Crawford(O), Carol Cumbee(O), Alternates, Warren Alcorn(I) and Ernest Hewitt(O).


Meetings: The Zoning Board of Adjustment meets at the call of the Chairman in the Town Hall at 30 South Main Street, Weaverville, NC.
